Environmental Sciences Analyst
“Sustainable food systems are a passion of mine. I love that I get to work with a team and for growers who are passionate about the same thing. I’m always learning something new, and all of that makes what we do exciting and worthwhile.”
Luke Eaton joined the Sustainable Environmental Consultants (SEC) team as an environmental sciences analyst in 2021 where he supports the company’s EcoPractice’s technology team in the development of modeling tools and integrating them into the EcoPractice’s platform. Passionate about sustainable agriculture, Luke works closely with SEC’s agronomic team to improve data onboarding efficiency, data processing and speed, and other analytics tools to generate outcomes. He conducts research on new projects and runs the environmental models, reviewing and summarizing data.
Luke enjoys collaborating with the team to complete projects and getting the chance to see all the different pieces of the process come together. His passion for sustainable agriculture, specifically sustainable food systems, helps fuel his love for working with a team centered around helping growers who are passionate about the same thing. He finds the agriculture industry an especially appealing world to work in because of how tangible the science around it is and how it has very real-world implications.
Luke graduated magna cum laude from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in environmental science with an emphasis in soil and land management, along with a minor in plant science.
