Albie Miles is the Assistant Professor of Sustainable Community Food Systems at the University of Hawai‘i–West O‘ahu. Dr. Miles received his Ph.D. in Environmental Science, Policy and Management from UC Berkeley in 2013. His research explores the relationship between farming system biodiversity and ecosystem services from agriculture and the structural obstacles to sustainable food and farming systems. He has worked at the UN FAO and the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems at UC Santa Cruz.
