Research profile

I am interested in applying precision agriculture methods and the development of alternative strategies for sustainable agricultural food production and sustainable management of biodiversity and natural resources. Specifically, I work with sensor-based and autonomous systems for plant protection, which include remote sensing, proximal and on-ground data acquisition and interpretation. For this purpose, I use the clasical experimental designs and also precision experimental design for on-farm experimentation. The statistical data analysis/modelling includes linear and nonlinear models, as well as mixed models.
In the future, I expect to include ummanned aerial systems to improve sensing and decision making.

Current projects

Long term experiment Dikopshof
