"My research in Latin America is focused on the development and application of biosensors and smart decision analytics in rural communities. We aim to work with communities for providing access to open source tools that provide analysis of planetary health (i.e., the health of agricultural, environmental, food, waste, and human systems). I primarily work with Universidad del Valle (Cali, Colombia) and the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (Palmida, Colombia) and we co-develop planetary health technologies with non-profit partners. I am the lead contact for an MOU with UV. In 2016 I was a Fulbright specialist at Universidad del Valle and I am the director of a USDA Center of Excellence on Smart Water Quality Systems that partners with multiple institutions in Colombia."
