Project

Improving Food Safety and Sustainability

Description

The goal of this project is to narrow the gap between agricultural researchers in the lab and growers in the field. To that end, she will facilitate student visits to California farms and processing plants, and provide outreach opportunities in rural communities. In addition, she will facilitate visits from farmers, processing managers and agricultural community members at UC Riverside. Those visits will include roundtable discussions with graduate students to foster greater understanding of the broader impacts of the research.
