Dr. Lampayan is recognized a water management expert at IRRI. He obtained his PhD in Resource Management and Environmental Science, at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia in 2001. He has 25 years of research science and research management experience, including participatory research and development, training, and outreach activities in a number of developing countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia on water-use efficient and water-saving technologies in rice-based farming systems. Dr. Lampayan works with the national agricultural research and extension systems (NARES) partners in Asia to develop new and practical techniques to decrease water use in irrigated rice production and increase its water use efficiency. Dr. Lampayan and his research group developed the alternate wetting and drying (AWD) technique, a water-saving technology which is now widely promoted in a number of countries in Asia. Dr. Lampayan was also the IRRI-Laos country office research leader from 2012-2013, and IRRI-Laos country representative in 2014. He is currently based at IRRI Headquarters in Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines.
