DR. GABRIEL GRANCO
RECEIVES STRATEGIC INTERDISCIPLINARY
RESEARCH GRANT 2020
Dr. Gabriel Granco (Geography and Anthropology), in collaboration with Dr. Subodh Bhandari (Aerospace Engineering) and Dr. John Korah (Computer Science), received the Strategic Interdisciplinary Research Grant (SIRG). The SIRG will support their project entitled "Cross-Scale Estimation of Agricultural Suitability of Specialty Crops in California using UAV and Satellite Remote Sensing Observations". The goal of this research is to identify areas with suitable conditions for the sustainable production of specialty crops using satellite and UAV-based remote sensing data and GIS. The study will involve the three professors and many students, thus exposing the students to cutting-edge interdisciplinary research in sustainable agricultural production systems.

Kun Chen

Dr. Kun Chen 

Our beloved colleague, professor, and dearest friend, Dr. Kun Chen passed away on October 13, 2015, after two years of fighting a late-stage cancer.  Dr. Chen was a rising scholar and a bright star in the department.  Though her time with us was short, she made a long lasting impact on the department and especially on her students.  She was an excellent teacher, an engaged mentor, a great colleague, and most of all, a very intelligent, sincere, and caring person.

We are raising funds to establish the Dr. Kun Chen Endowed Memorial Scholarship to help generations of future students who will continue what Kun started.  Our goal is to raise a minimum of $50,000 in funds to establish this endowed scholarship. We hope her name will be forever associated with the department, the university, and future students she loved so much. To make a contribution to the Dr. Kun Chen Endowed Memorial Scholarship Fund, view the  Chen Memorial Scholarship page.
