Water for Food

2016 Student Support Research Forum

On May 12, 2016, the Water for Food Institute held its second annual student support research forum. The forum provided a stage for students who received research support from the institute to share the results of their research with faculty fellows, staff, students and the broader university community. Below is a list of the students or faculty fellows who presented with links to their presentations.
