    Sylvie Brouder, PhD
    Director of the Purdue Center for Global Food Security
    Wickersham Chair of Excellence in Agricultural Research

    The PCGFS’s mission is to elevate the global food and nutrition security agenda and to engage with our varied partners in meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals of eliminating hunger and nutrition insecurity by 2030 while conserving the natural resource base. 

    Dr. Brouder graduated from Harvard University (BA, Biology) and the University of California – Davis (PhD, Ecology); she studies agricultural productivity and agriculture’s impacts on the environment in a changing climate and oversees research activities at the Water Quality Field Station, an in-field laboratory and Purdue University Core Facility.

    With expertise in soil health and climate smart agriculture, she works with various organizations and partners to develop, implement and assess public investments in science and capacity development. She has conducted in-depth reviews of the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research Programs for the Food and Agriculture Organization and, with Purdue colleagues, designed graduate curricula for a World Bank-funded African Center of Excellence in Climate Smart Agriculture.

    Dr. Brouder recently served as President for the American Society of Agronomy (ASA) where she advanced an array of initiatives to increase the rate of translation of science into guidance for policy makers and for evidenced-based practice in agriculture. She is currently serving a second term on the Standing Science Advisory Board for US Environmental Protection Agency to provide expertise in ecology, climate change and agriculture. She is a Fellow of ASA and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
