BTI adjunct faculty member Sarah Evanega has been awarded the coveted Borlaug CAST Communication Award. Evanega is the founding director of the Cornell Alliance for Science, a global communications effort that promotes evidence-informed decision-making across a range of science issues.

“With her ability to communicate on a variety of issues facing science, agriculture and technology, she is a worthy recipient of the 2021 Borlaug CAST Communication Award,” noted a press release from the Council for Agricultural Science and Technology (CAST).

“The world is facing numerous grave challenges that can benefit from scientific solutions,” Evanega said in a press release from Cornell Alliance for Science. “I’m deeply gratified that CAST has recognized the work of the Alliance for Science at a time when it has never been more important to advocate for science.”

Evanega is also a research professor in the Department of Global Development with a joint appointment in the School of Integrative Plant Science in the College of Agriculture at Cornell University.
