Joseph Camaddo

GFI Fellow - Class of 2018

Undergraduate student, environmental engineering
UC Merced

DESCRIPTION

Joseph will explore the connection of water salinity to crop yield in the Central Valley. Investigating different crops and their tolerance to salinity as well as emerging trends in water supply will allow him to help California better manage its agriculture. As global populations increase and climates rise, food production becomes more and more stressed, and it becomes increasingly important that we protect California's agriculture.
