In this week's podcast, we sit down with
Chloe Dempsey to talk about meat, alternative protein, and the
environment in China. Chloe is a research fellow at the Cellular
Agriculture Society and Yenching scholar at Peking University,
where she is completing a Master’s of Economics. Chloe’s
thesis focuses on the market for cultured meat in China, with a
focus on consumers. Chloe also has an interest in alternative
protein, sustainable food solutions and agriculture across Asia,
Oceania and Latin America. Chloe comes from both Australia and
Ireland, both countries whose key exports to China are agricultural
and food related.
Chloe has previously lived in Brazil and has supplementary qualifications in philanthropy and social impact design. Chloe’s undergraduate studies were in Law and International relations, and over the last four years she has studied, worked and volunteered across Greater China and the Asia Pacific in commercial law and for environmental and social causes.
Since 2016, Chloe has been predominantly resident in Beijing and in her spare time enjoys long distance running and tracking down Beijing’s best jianbing.
