David Gustafson

ILSI Research Foundation
Director, CIMSANS
Dave Gustafson serves as Director for ILSI Research Foundation’s Center for Integrated Modeling of Sustainable Agriculture and Nutrition Security (CIMSANS), which helps food systems meet nutrition needs in more sustainable ways. CIMSANS leads partnerships on novel food system modeling methods, better informing adaptation to the increasing impacts of climate change, extreme events and resource scarcity on sustainable nutrition security. Dave’s academic training was in chemical engineering (Stanford, B.S., 1980; University of Washington, Ph.D., 1983). He worked 30 years in private industry (Shell, Rhône-Poulenc, Monsanto) before joining the ILSI Research Foundation in 2014. His initial focus was predicting agricultural impacts on water quality. Dave subsequently developed new modeling approaches to pollen-mediated gene flow and the population genetics of insect and weed resistance. Beginning in 2007, Dave began to focus on how climate change impacts agriculture. He has served on various national and international teams looking at this issue, including the Executive Secretariat of the US Government’s National Climate Assessment Development & Advisory Committee (2011- 2014).
