Tue, June 25, 2019 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM See description. Join Dr. Zia Mehrabi for his research seminar, "Data for Decision Making about Food."

We live in a data driven society. But what can data tell us about delivering food for people and the planet? In this talk, Dr. Mehrabi will present a new vision for transforming data for decision-making on food system issues. He will explore new and emerging themes on the challenges facing agriculture and use ideas from his own research on ways we can leverage existing, and future data streams, to make better and more informed decisions on food system interventions, and the impacts they have on society.

This seminar is part of a Cluster Hire in LFS Applied Biology, Sustainable Agriculture and the Environment, and CSFS at UBC Farm.
