Cami Ryan, PhD
Cami Ryan, PhD is social and behavioral sciences lead for Bayer Crop Science. For over 25 years, Cami has worked in agriculture and ag sciences, most of that time as a public sector researcher. In her position with Regulatory Scientific Affairs (RSA), she is responsible for strengthening relationships and engaging with social, behavioral, and political scientists. Cami leverages an expanding scientific network in North America and around the world to more closely examine and understand policy, regulations, consumer behavior, and public acceptance of agricultural innovations. Cami is also a Professional Affiliate with the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Saskatchewan in Canada and a member of the Scientific Industry Advisory Committee (SIAC) for Genome Canada.
She and her cowboy husband, Blair, live – along with a variety of critters – on a small horse farm just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Cami and Blair have two grown children (Hayden and Tanya), one son-in-law (Brin), and an adorable grandson (Cashton). In her spare time, Cami paints, writes poetry, is a part-time theatre actress, and desperately tries to keep her growing collection of house plants alive and green.
During this conversation, Cami and I spoke about the monetization of disinformation and how to identify misinformation vs. disinformation.
