Whether it's sending needed medical supplies to victims of an earthquake, or transporting food from farmland to the city, moving large amounts of goods from place to place is complicated. At the June Queen Anne Science Cafe, join UW's Benita Beamon, Ph.D., to explore how engineers use computer-based tools to help design networks that deliver food or crucial humanitarian supplies as efficiently as possible.
