Concurrent Science, Engineering, and Technology for the Prevention of Postharvest Loss

This project aims to study the problem of postharvest losses and identify prevention strategies and address the same by developing a platform and modeling framework for using Concurrent Science, Engineering, and Technology (ConSEnT) tools. The long-term goal of the project is to provide holistic solutions for addressing food security issues in a world with increasing population and demand with an immediate objective to lay the foundation for educators, practitioners, and policy makers to address postharvest loss issues in countries such as India and Brazil.
