Alaine Johnson graduated with her Master's at Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies focusing on Development, Climate, and Sustainability in South and Southeast Asia. As an agrarian scholar, her work focuses on organic agri-food systems, conservation, and regenerative agriculture. Alaine grew up in Seattle and then lived overseas for 12 years in Singapore, India, Indonesia, Eswatini, and Thailand, and worked in carbon accounting, coffee production and research, and before that in a tech startup and as a journalist. She's part of the second graduating class of Yale-NUS College in Singapore, where she majored in environmental science, and before that she was a Shelby Davis Scholar at the United World College of Southern Africa. Fun fact: her pandemic hobby was endurance cycling and she cycled 180km in a day!
