Jasmine Mausbach, originally from Omaha, Neb., is an undergraduate student working on bachelor’s degrees in environmental restoration and Spanish at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Jasmine is researching and assessing various student engagement programs to evaluate how they might be applied to programs at DWFI. She is also working on a project to promote the Institute’s Faculty Fellows on the website. In addition, she is developing a database of irrigation technology, irrigated land and irrigation productivity for every country in the world. The database will be used to create an interactive visual map with irrigation facts for each country.
She hopes to make a difference in the lives of those without enough food due to poor water management and farming techniques by assisting with international and local development. Her career goals include traveling the world, identifying environmental issues and proposing and implementing sustainable solutions. She hopes her experience at DWFI will help her achieve those goals.
