Landscape-Level Pest Control Technologies and Extranalities When Consumer Preferences are Non-Neutral
by Dr. Zachary S. Brown
Dr. Zack Brown will be discussing a new program he is co-leading on Agricultural Biotechnology in our evolving Food, Energy, and Water Systems (AgBioFEWS) at North Carolina State University. With funding from the National Science Foundation, the program offers PhD candidates across multidisciplinary fields of study the opportunity to examine the science, policy, and public engagement aspects and impacts of Agricultural Biotechnology on Food, Energy, and Water. His talk will present a collaborative effort between himself and Mike Jones, a PhD candidate and Fellow in a predecessor to AgBioFEWS, and will highlight the impact, scope and reach of current work from the program. More information on the AgBioFEWS program can be obtained at: https://research.ncsu.edu/ges/academics/agbiofews/
