Hanna McIntosh is an agroecologist and entomologist who works where food systems, social justice, and science intersect. As a research scientist at CIAS, she coordinates food sovereignty research with tribal partners as part of the Rural Partnership Initiative. She is also an outreach specialist with the Organic Grain Resource and Information Network where she coordinates outreach events and programming for organic grain farmers. She completed her PhD in Entomology in 2023 and MS in Agroecology in 2020, both at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Her work focused on agroecological pest management, and she got to grow (and eat) a lot of raspberries! Her favorite part about graduate school was leading Entomology’s graduate student association, building community among graduate students, and working to make her community more inclusive by leading groups addressing field safety, communication, and mentoring.
Hanna spends a lot of time resting, reading, cooking, gardening, and snuggling with her cat Bean. She loves trying new foods, folding dumplings, crafts of all sorts (drawing, watercolor, knitting, weaving, linocut printing), and looking at insects.
