Dirk Maier, Ph.D.,is a professor of agricultural engineering at Iowa State University in Ames, IA and director of the Consortium for Innovation in Post-Harvest Loss and Food Waste Reduction.
Maier will be discussing some of his many experiences traveling abroad working with post-harvest loss prevention and quality preservation in Latin America, Africa and Asia during the Grain Elevator and Processing Society GEAPS Exchange Online Conference Feb. 23-25.
