Ned Spang, Ph.D.
Associate Professor and Faculty Lead @University of California, Davis
Dr. Spang’s research focuses on characterizing and optimizing the efficiency of linked food, energy, and water resource systems. This work has spanned a range of topics from examining opportunities to reduce energy use within water infrastructure systems to assessing the economic and environmental potential of cultured meat products. He has also focused much of his work on the topic of food loss and waste across the entire food supply chain, including estimating on-farm food losses, repurposing food processing byproducts, and assessing the potential for community-scale anaerobic digestion systems. To further address this interdisciplinary issue, Dr. Spang has worked to establish the Food Loss and Waste Collaborative – a collection of roughly 100 faculty, students, and staff at UC Davis, representing more than 20 different departments, research centers, and institutes on campus.
