The Food Supply Chain Analytics and Sensing (FSAS) Initiative is creating predictive analytical tools and technologies to improve the design and management of safe and reliable food supply chains that are accessible and sustainable.
FSAS Initiative research has three areas of focus:
- Supply chain and market design optimization with emphasis on improving farmer and consumer welfare, as well as agricultural and supply chain practices;
- Management of food safety and adulteration risks through the development of predictive risk modeling and sensing technologies;
- Access to healthy food by addressing food deserts and food waste throughout the food supply chain.
