I am an agricultural data scientist developing new methods in geoinformatics to leverage big data for improving the triple bottom line of agriculture. My interdisciplinary dissertation research enhances the accuracy and timeliness of management recommendations derived from remotely sensed data and crop modeling in precision agriculture systems.
