Lori Weaver

I am a native of rural southern Wisconsin but now make my home in Lexington, Kentucky. I began my career in communications with a trade association in the crop science sector, a position which first sparked my interest in biofuels and their inter-relationship with global food security. I later worked as an editor, writer and public relations account executive in both the business-to-business and business-to-consumer arenas. In recent years, I have served as a freelance writer and consultant for a number of companies working in the renewable fuels and sustainability markets, including the world's largest producer of ethanol. I have covered the research and development of alternative energies, including algae-based fuels, as well as the hybrid vehicle sector. In addition to analyzing emerging research and technologies in these areas, I have covered regulatory and legislative issues impacting renewable fuels and green transport.
