He is a part of the Laboratory of Food and Resource Economics conducting an evidence based study on how our food system operates and the implications of how we choose food consumption.

"A chef doesn't only cook delicious things. A chef is a person who can connect the producers and eaters to agree upon an absolute idea that every life is important. We have to pave the broken road between nature and culture to show how we are all connected."
-Chef Shinobu Namae, L'Effervescence
