Hi Murilo,

Nice to meet you! And thanks for the introduction, Dan. I am indeed
researching the culture of indoor farming for my dissertation at Harvard. I
would love to chat, if you have time.

I’m a cultural anthropologist of technology, so my focus is on who is
interested in controlled-environment agriculture. I’m happy to share
information and be in touch digitally. My email is
wmarschall@fas.harvard.edu. Hope you’re having a great trip!
