Perspectives in International Development Seminar Series: Spring 2021

In this seminar Jaron Porciello, an information scientist in Global Development, will discuss the findings from a new study, Agriculture in the Digital Age, that explores the evidence about how farmers are using digital services in low- and middle-income countries. Join us for a lively conversation about digital agriculture and the ways it will continue to change research, development and policy landscapes in agriculture.

She is also the P.I. for Agriculture in the Digital Age, an evidence-based review looking at proliferation of digital technology and data analytics in agriculture contributing to the lives of farmers and agricultural service providers.  She also serves as a faculty fellow at the David R.
