Three MSI Principal Investigators are among the faculty members featured in a special report by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resources Sciences (CFANS). The report, Solutions: The Future is Now, is dedicated to work being done by early-career faculty, grad students, and post-docs.

Jason Hill, an associate professor in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering, uses MSI resources to run computer models that support research into the links between human activities and the purchase of services and consumer goods to the air pollution emissions these activities ultimately create.

Candice Hirsch, an assistant professor in the Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, uses MSI resources to assist in her studies of the genotypic and phenotypic variations in maize, a highly important crop.

Paul Venturelli, an assistant professor in the Department of Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology, runs a model on the supercomputers that simulates 50 years of fish population and community dynamics on an evolving delta system.
