My lab is the Plant Sensing Laboratory.
We use a collection of Remote and Proximal Sensing techniques and scales in the open field as well as more controlled environments, to obtain non-destructive data and imagery. A variety of techniques including Machine Learning and Image Processing are implemented.
The ability to nondestructively assess plant traits is explored and used to detect a-biotic and biotic stresses, predict yield and assess plant phenology among other applications.
Matched with spatial information the potential of Precision Agriculture management tools is studied as well.
We also use similar techniques to study plant phenotyping for plant breeders.
