I am an Assistant Professor at North Carolina State University, Biological and Agricultural Engineering Department. I received my Ph.D. degree in Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering from Iowa State University under the supervision of Dr. Lie Tang and my B.S. degree in Biosystems Engineering from Zhejiang University. My research mainly focuses on agricultural robotics, 2D & 3D computer vision, and machine learning. During my Ph.D. program, I have worked on developing robotic and automated systems for both indoor and in-field plant phenotyping applications.
I aim to develop smart cyber-physical systems that integrate cutting-edge robotics, machine vision, and machine learning technologies to automate labor-intensive tasks in agricultural systems. My research at NCSU will include:
