CANR to honor Daniel Uyeh, Ph.D. as 2024 Global Scholar in Research

The Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources has named Daniel Uyeh, Ph.D., as the 2024 Global Scholar in Research. Uyeh will be honored at the CANR Faculty and Staff Award Reception on May 2.

The Global Scholas Program supports established, early and mid-career faculty members with seed funding and travel support for two years. Selected annually by the CANR International Programs Office, scholars work to strengthen and expand their global linkages, networks and collaborative programs across three core missions of the college in diverse areas of research, education and outreach.

Daniel Uyeh, Ph.D., is an associate professor in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering. Uyeh conducts multidisciplinary research in climate-smart decision support systems, with research focuses across climate-smart agriculture, decision support systems, system modeling and AI in agriculture. Uyeh’s work related to the development of such systems aims to enhance agricultural decision making, leading to better adaptation and resilience to forthcoming climate change. Prior to joining BAE, Uyeh was a research professor at the Upland Field Machinery Research Center, and researcher at the Smart Agriculture Innovation Center at Kyungwook National University.

The Global Scholars Program began in summer 2019 after Karim Maredia was named director of CANR international programs. The program centers around a faculty development initiative that grows the college’s global footprint and forms lasting international partnerships.
