*Featuring Astronaut Clayton Anderson, Nebraska State Climatologist Martha Shulski and several DWFI supported students

We are very pleased to host astronaut Clayton -"Astro Clay"- Anderson, Nebraska's only astronaut, as our keynote speaker this year. Clay spent 167 days in space and 38 hours and 28 minutes in executing 6 spacewalks. He applied 15 times before NASA selected him as an astronaut in 1998, and he spent 30 years working for NASA; 15 as an engineer and then 15 as an astronaut.

Nebraska state climatologist Martha Shulski, Ph.D. will also be joining us. A native of Nebraska, Martha is also a DWFI Faculty Fellow, associate professor of Applied Climate Science at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, director of the Nebraska State Climate Office and self-proclaimed "weather nerd." She was one of the contributing authors on the Fourth National Climate Assessment released in 2018.

Since 2014, DWFI's student support program has made more than 80 awards supporting postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students on all four University of Nebraska campuses and invested $2.7M - of which $2.1M has been matched one-to-one by faculty. We are delighted to hear from several of the students wrapping up their time with us.

The Water for Food Research Forum is open to everyone, but registration is required at the link below. After registering, users will receive a Zoom link to join the virtual forum.
