Stetson University associate professor of mathematics and local chef Hari Pulapaka, Ph.D., was inducted into the prestigious American Academy of Chefs.
Induction into the American Academy of Chefs represents the highest standards of professionalism in the American Culinary Federation, society and industry.
For the past 15 years, Pulapaka has been a nationally respected advocate of sustainable food systems in his roles as a chef, entrepreneur and author, and he has been at the forefront of issues such as reducing food waste, developing diets for planetary and human health, reducing hunger, promoting sustainable seafood, and supporting traceability and transparency.
During Stetson’s fall 2023 semester, in addition to teaching mathematics courses across the curriculum, Pulapaka will return to teaching food-related courses, including the one-of-a-kind, first-year seminar titled “Tasty No Waste Cooking & Eating.”
