Dr. Andrew Riseman
Academic Director, UBC (Food Systems) Senior Agricultural Advisor, Clean Seed Andrew Riseman, Ph.D. (Penn State University) is an Associate Professor and Academic Director of the UBC Centre for Sustainable Food Systems-UBC Farm in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems, University of British Columbia. His areas of research include understanding the role of plant genetics in the design of sustainable production systems, identifying relevant traits useful in these systems, and integrating this germplasm into an optimized production system. In addition to this agronomic research, he is also involved in various aspects of urban agriculture including assessment of business models, food safety, and community resiliency. Andrew has authored several publications ranging in topics from species evolution, nutrient efficiency, agronomy, and education, in journals such as Plant and Soil, American Journal of Plant Sciences, International Journal of Plant Science, Journal of Sustainable Agriculture, and the Journal of the American Educational research Association. He continues to lead in the education of Applied Biology students at UBC through embracing community engagement (i.e., community based action research) and the use of technology to enhance the learning environment.

Andrew Riseman, UBC
Andrew received his PhD from The Pennsylvania State University in Horticulture focusing on the breeding of nutrient efficient cultivars. He then completed a Post-doctorial Fellowship at the Danish Institute for Agriculture working on chemical free growth control of miniature potted roses. In 2000, he accepted his current position at UBC in the Faculty of Land and Food Systems. His research concentrates on plant breeding and understanding the role of genotypes in sustainable production systems. He is also the Academic Director of the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems-UBC Farm.

Andrew Riseman, Associate Professor
Andrew Riseman Have you ever wondered where your vegetables came from? Were they sustainably produced? Did their production benefit the environment? These are a few of the questions that guide Andrew Riseman's research program. As a classical plant breeder, he is interested in the role of plant genetics in sustainable production systems. Moving beyond breeding for yield and pest resistance, he is more interested in breeding for the full range of ecological services plants can provide, including food provision, but also other important system-level services (i.e., nutrient cycling, microbiome habitat, carbon sequestration, soil conditioning; all critical services needed by a healthy agroecosystem). Most recently, he has been driven by a quote by farmer philosopher Wendel Berry. To paraphrase, 'By separating plant production from animal production, we have created two problems from one solution', meaning we have too much nutrients (poop from animals) in one place and not enough nutrients (fertilizer needed by the plants) in another. In thinking about this challenge and his research interests, he is now focusing on developing a program centred on intensive aquaponics, integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA), and other such integrated plant:animal systems. He is interested in better understanding how a intensive but sustainable complex food production system works and identifying those emergent properties that support system robustness and resiliency. In addition to Andrew's research interests, he teaches Applied Plant Breeding (APBI 318), Digital Storytelling (LFS 400), and Land Food Community III (LFS 450). He believes strongly in the power of engaging students in research, to personally connect theory with practice, and to create new knowledge. Andrew regularly supervises undergraduate directed studies, and undergraduate thesis courses.

Doctor Andrew Riseman
Doctor Andrew Riseman - sustainable food production systems expert Dr. Andrew Riseman received his PhD (Horticulture) in 1997 from Penn State University where he studied the genetics of zinc deficiency in, Exacum. He then completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Denmark working on sustainable production technologies for the ornamental greenhouse industry. Following Denmark, he accepted his current faculty position at UBC where he researches sustainable food production systems (i.e., legume:grain intercropping, organic nitrogen sources for tomato production, no-till cultivation) and various aspects of urban agriculture (i.e., business models, food safety, social resilience). In addition, he is the Academic Director for the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems, fondly known as the UBC Farm.
