Dr. Isaya Kisekka, a brand new professor of Hydrology at the University of California, Davis, took time to come down to the longstanding CASI NRI Project field during a tour of San Joaquin Valley sites and visits with people on September 21st. Dr. Kisekka is a recently-appointed professor and agricultural engineer who hails most recently from Kansas State University where he was also a professor. Before that, he received his PhD degree from the University of Florida.
Isaya Kisekka and Dan Munk
At KSU he worked on many of the sorts of things he looks forward to contributing in his new position with UC Davis, namely strategies for sustaining crop production under increasingly water-short conditions. CASI member and veteran UCCE Irrigation, Soils and Cotton Advisor, Dan Munk, coordinated Isaya's tour and took him to many sites of local interest. We look forward to many very productive interactions with Isaya in the future.
