System Informatics and Analysis

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

Principal Investigators: Luis F. Rodríguez, Yogendra Shastri, & Yanfeng Ouyang
[Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering & Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering]

Dr. Rodríguez leads a research team working on developing the ConSEnT (Concurrent Science, Engineering, and Technology) foundation. The lack of comprehensive information has been an obstacle for reducing postharvest loss. ConSEnT will be developed and employed in this project to provide a web-based informatics platform for use at the ADM Institute and by other researchers investigating postharvest loss. This platform will include a foundational database, analytical modeling, and web-based decision support system capabilities to address the prevention of postharvest loss.
