With GFI, Dave is applying his background in data science and statistics to forecast worldwide production of plant- and cell-based meat through the 21st century. These models leverage large-scale historic data to predict consumer trends and incorporate production inputs at every scale from micronutrients to manufacturing infrastructure. Results from these efforts will be published as open-source, interactive web-apps that can inform decision-making among innovators, investors, and researchers. Dave earned his Ph.D. in Molecular Biophysics at Johns Hopkins University (JHU), and was later a research professor in Biomedical Engineering at JHU. He currently develops bioinformatics algorithms and artificial intelligence in biotech.
