Ariella Sela is currently pursuing her MS/MPH in Agriculture, Food, and Environment at the Friedman School of Nutrition and Policy at Tufts University. Before Friedman, she held various roles within corporate sustainability, most recently consulting for Fortune 500 companies across the food value chain, from animal processors and consumer packaged goods companies to big box retailers and multinational restaurant chains. During her time at Friedman, she has interned at Stonyfield Organic; worked on a research project looking at the impacts of climate change on coffee quality; and helped develop a course on corporate social responsibility in the food industry. This summer she will be the Climate and Impact Risk Fellow at Root Capital, working on a project focused on driving climate resilience for smallholder farmers in Latin America.
Ariella earned a B.S. from Emory University in Environment and Sustainability Management with a minor in Spanish. In her time quarantined, you can find her riding the Minute Man with a bandana around her face, baking much more than usual, and cuddling her two cats and pup.
