Dr. Faisal Hossain, Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering, College of Engineering

Hosted at UW-Seattle Kane Hall Room 130

Asia has some of the fastest growing economies in the world, but it is also home to two-thirds of the global hunger population. Regional monsoons impact efficient water management and reduce agricultural yield. Professor Hossain is utilizing global weather models and satellite data to develop technology that will help farmers increase crop yield through sustainable water management.
