“The ACES Global Academy will have a long-term impact on my professional career. Since the immersion trip, I have already been invited back to the University of Philippines, Los Banos to teach a short course, and I am in discussions with the International Rice Research Institute to combine my group’s mathematical modeling expertise with their experimental expertise to study textural changes in rice during cooking.” Dr. Pawan Singh Takhar, Food Science and Human Nutrition
