John Bowman

Bowman has nearly 30 years’ experience designing, implementing and managing agricultural development projects in more than 30 countries. Much of his past and current work has revolved around containing bird flu, most recently in Vietnam. Bowman recently accepted the position of senior international affairs specialist for USAID. His favorite part of the job is fieldwork. Or, as Bowman puts it, “Jumping off a plane, putting on my boots and traveling to a farmer’s field to help him find solutions.”
