Spiker, Marie on UW Magazine


2011 Bonderman Fellow Marie Spiker, now an assistant professor of epidemiology at UW, is featured in the December 2021 issue of UW Magazine:

“A Bonderman Travel Fellowship allowed me to spend a year between finishing at the UW and starting at John’s Hopkins exploring food and farming. Some organizations connected me with small-scale and family run farms where I had hands-on farming experiences. Most of my travels were in South America and south Asia. Learning about different ways of living, farming and eating gave me great perspective going into graduate studies.”
