In the fall of 2014, Savannah began working for Dr. Smyth as his Research Assistant. Together they write and edit the blog on SAIFood. Along with managing and editing on SAIFood, Savannah carries out research on the topics of agriculture policy, economics, and adoption of innovation. Savannah is currently working on a set of Saskatchewan crop producer surveys, looking at producers’ crop rotations and their inputs. Since working with Dr. Smyth, she has also had the opportunity to work on a number of smaller projects looking at the approval processes of GM crops, the advancements of pathogen testing at export positions, and survey plant breeders on the current practices and procedures in Canada.
Before joining, Savannah completed both her M.Sc. Agriculture Economics (focus on Canadian grain handling using GIS) and B.Sc. Agribusiness from the University of Saskatchewan.
