Stephen Vosti Awarded 2019 Chancellor's Award for International Engagement

March 27, 2019

Stephen Vosti, adjunct professor in the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (ARE), was recently honored with a 2019 Chancellor's Award for International Engagement for outstanding international engagement in carrying out the university's mission of teaching, research and outreach.

Dr. Vosti has been a member of the UC Davis community for an impressive two decades. With a collaborative and high-energy approach that generates insights not possible from discipline-specific research alone, Vosti is renowned for his work studying the economic links between poverty and the environment, health and the environment, and health and nutrition.

Vosti’s multidisciplinary work takes him to countries in Africa, Asia, and North and South America—and changes the ways researchers, policymakers, and donors think about poverty, malnutrition, and human interactions with the environment. In bridging disciplines, people, and countries, Vosti uses theory to implement real-world solutions, such as his cost-effective way to prevent infant deaths in Haiti, or his work in improving women’s health in Africa, or in providing expertise on the interactions between farmers and tropical forest systems in the Amazon.

"Steve's impact goes beyond research and policy," his award nomination letter states. "He has increased the research capacity of Brazilian and African institutions. He has deeply affected the professional lives of scores of close collaborators and the many students he has trained."
