Engineering, Food Science Faculty Member Named Distinguished Alumnus at McGill University
Ebenezer Miezah Kwofie, assistant professor of food systems sustainability and resilience, was honored with a 2021 Macdonald Distinguished Young Alumni Award by McGill University, where he earned his Ph.D. in 2016. Kwofie holds a joint appointment in Biological and Agricultural Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Food Science departments at U of A.
Named for McGill University founder Sir William Macdonald, the award recognizes outstanding contributions alumni have made in their professions in the same spirit of generosity and commitment to excellence as Macdonald.
Kwofie was recognized in a virtual ceremony Oct. 2.
He holds a Ph.D. in bioresource engineering from McGill. Prior to joining the University of Arkansas, he was a research associate at the food and bioprocess research lab in the Bioresource Engineering Department at McGill, where he served as manager for International Food Systems Development projects in developing countries such as Zambia, Malawi, Ethiopia, Bolivia and Honduras. These projects were focused on enhancing food systems sustainability and strengthening capacity of stakeholders including farmers, farmer cooperatives, small-scale food enterprises, nongovernmental organizations and local governments.
Kwofie's research explores the connectivity and dynamics of environmental, economic and product-process efficiency to address food system sustainability and resilience.
