Assistant Research Scientist
Corpus Christi, TX
Ph.D., Agronomy, Texas A&M University, 2015

My position focuses on the management of a cropping systems and remote sensing program for agricultural research applications, and crop precision management. This includes the development of both, ground- and aerial-based platforms for high throughput data collection. A lot of attention is being given to Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) due to their capability of offering high spatial and temporal resolution data, at a relatively low cost. Our current program is a joint effort between scientists in the areas of agronomy, plant physiology, engineering, and computer science. I am currently stationed at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center, Corpus Christi, TX.
