Meet the Expert: Gordon W. Price

Gordon W. Price is a Best Food Facts expert in waste management and agricultural sustainability, serving as Associate Professor and Principal Investigator for the Innovative Waste Management Research Program at Dalhousie University.

Tell us one interesting fact about yourself.

I like to apply my knowledge to areas that do not necessarily appear, on the surface, to fit. For example, we were recently approached to help preserve the skeleton of two whales, a blue whale and a north Atlantic right whale, through composting. So, we have engaged in a project to do that.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I have a number of hobbies, including playing soccer, learning piano and reading.

What are you currently working on?

Agricultural systems management projects related to soil health, crop production, and fate and transport of organic contaminants in soils.

What are you passionate about related to your area of expertise?

My passions relate to understanding how environmental systems and managed landscapes are impacted by human interventions and how we can minimize those impacts.
