As a member of several international delegations, he has often traveled to and helped solve life-changing problems in Africa, Asia and South America.
Today, scientists at the world-renowned Blaustein Institutes are developing technologies that are game-changers, enriching desert farming, harnessing solar energy, recycling water, and much more.
