Paul Gauthier is an Associate Research Scholar in Plant Physiology, Horticulture and Ecosystem Modeling at Princeton University.
For the past two years, Paul`s work has focused on studying the sustainability and feasibility of producing food in cities using Vertical Farming. His current work aims to study the adaptability of crop species to hydroponics and vertical set-up in the context of increasing yield and feeding a growing population. Placing food production in the context of countries’ energy independence and sovereignty helps in understanding the upcoming challenges. Paul´s priorities are to give decision-makers sustainable options to feed the growing urban population with diverse and nutrient-rich fresh food by 2050.
