Welcome to FEAST Lab!


We are a transdisciplinary group of researchers working at the interface of science, engineering, and technology connecting the food system.

Addressing Hidden Hunger
(An interconnected challenge of food and nutrition security)

Considering the complex nature of the global challenges, we look forward to collaborate (SDG 17) with stakeholders interested in SDG 2: Zero Hunger to improve the health of people & planet!

“We’ve made tremendous strides toward ending hunger over the past century, but the job isn’t finished. It is a complex problem, and there is no one magic bullet or a single solution, so we will need input from experts in diverse fields. But I’m an optimist, and I believe that, if we pursue integrated interdisciplinary approaches here at MU and around the world, we can end hunger before the end of the 21st century.”
