Peter Bowman graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2023 with a Master of Science in International Agricultural Development and a graduate certificate in Agricultural Extension and Science Communication. His master’s studies focused on how participatory extension can improve health and productivity of smallholder livestock in the Global South, including thesis research analyzing stakeholder perceptions of animal disease and vaccination through a One Health lens in rural Sierra Leone. Prior to graduate school, Peter worked as an agriculture extensionist for two years in a small, rural community in Togo with the Peace Corps. He extended his service to stay a third year in Togo to support improvements to training, needs assessment, and collaboration for Peace Corps Togo Volunteers working in agriculture. Upon returning to America, Peter worked in food insecurity outreach through AmeriCorps VISTA, helping increase the capacity of local organizations to serve food deserts in Fargo, North Dakota. He holds a bachelor’s degree in International Studies from the University of Idaho.
