ABSTRACT: The food systems, safety, and nutrition challenges are complex problems that require a holistic and coordinated approach to address. Many proposed solutions for food systems are queried by different disciplinary, divisional, and institutional stakeholders. Increasingly globalized food systems further compound the challenges that necessitate cohesive interactions across different scales and food systems levels. A multidisciplinary approach and integrated actions are needed for effective food systems. To transit towards food system sustainability, many food system activities might require reconstruction. Applying engineering skills to address most food systems challenges will ensure the practical sustainability of food production, supply chain, and consumption. This talk will focus on the application of engineering skills such as circular economy, non-invasive food quality and safety mechanisms, and smart food packaging systems to address food systems challenges.
