Texas A&M University, Research Associate & Ph.D. Student

I am a computer scientist, originally from Colombia, with a strong foundation in computer vision and artificial intelligence, currently working as a Research Associate at Texas A&M University (Soil & Crop Sciences department). For the past five years, my research has focused on developing open-source software solutions that allow farmers and researchers to extract physiological information from their crops. Working on this time I became aware of the importance of high-throughput phenotyping, as well as the lack of robust software tools used for analysis. This epiphany created a desire within me to apply computer vision techniques to the field of agriculture.
