Improving Kenya’s crop yield

A new paper from UD researchers used statistical approaches to examine rainfed corn in Kenya, a country with widespread corn cultivation and consumption and where the crop is central to individual’s livelihoods and national food security. The paper was authored by Kevin Ong’are Oluoch, a doctoral student in the College of Earth, Ocean and Environment with his adviser, Kyle Davis, a DSI resident faculty member.

Beyond the Speed of Sound

Hypersonic travel is in the future, but first researchers must solve some key problems including managing how hot vehicles get at high speeds, as well as how to maintain flight stability. UD Associate Professor Joseph Kuehl from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and DSI Associate Faculty is working with another researcher at the University of Notre Dame to try to solve these key challenges.
