    Editors-in-Chief

    The editors-in-chief have overall responsibility for the book, including approval of content and editing. They established the team of technical community editors (listed below).

    Nicholas M. Holden is Professor of Biosystems Engineering and Head of Teaching and Learning in the School of Biosystems and Food Engineering at University College Dublin, where he has worked for the last 25 years. His research is focused on the environmental impact and sustainability of agriculture, and food systems. He teaches life cycle assessment, precision agriculture, and green technology project modules and is the Programme Director of the BAgrSc Agricultural Systems Technology programme. He has been an ASABE member for over 20 years.

    Mary Leigh Wolfe is Professor in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering (BSE) at Virginia Tech. After serving on the faculty at Texas A&M University for over six years, she moved to Virginia Tech in 1992. Recently, she served as head of the BSE department for over eight years. Her research and teaching has focused on hydrologic modeling, nonpoint source (NPS) pollution control strategies, and decision support tools for NPS pollution control and watershed management. She has also conducted research related to engineering education. She is a Fellow, past president, and life member of ASABE.

    Jactone A. Ogejo is an Associate Professor in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering (BSE) at Virginia Tech. His research and extension programs focus on improving the management and use of bioresidues from production agriculture and food processing. His work encompasses recovering value-added products from bioresidues, agricultural air quality, and, more importantly, advancing knowledge to increase the acceptance and adoption of technology for manure management on animal production farms. He has been an ASABE member since 1992.

    Enda J. Cummins is a Professor and Head of Research, Innovation and Impact in the School of Biosystems and Food Engineering at University College Dublin. His main research area is food safety, risk assessment, and predictive modelling, with a particular focus on implications for human health and environmental contamination. He teaches quantitative risk assessment, food physics, and research and teaching methods. He is Programme Director for the Masters of Engineering Science in Food Engineering at UCD. He has been an ASABE member since 2002.
