 I am an Assistant Professor in Biosystems Engineering at Auburn University. I graduated from Purdue University with Ph.D. degree in Agricultural and Biological Engineering. My research was focused on using hyperspectral imaging and artificial intelligence for predicting the phenomic characteristics of corn. Prior to that, I got master’s degree from Dalhousie University Canada, where I worked on a robotic spraying system responsible for site-specific herbicide application. I did my undergrad in Agricultural Engineering from University of Agriculture, Pakistan. At Auburn, I will be working on establishing a research program to use the imaging sensors, proximal devices, computer vision, robust data mining algorithms, artificial intelligence and robotics for smart horticultural applications. The goal of the research is to help the farmers associated with fruit, vegetable, nursery, landscape and greenhouse production systems by minimizing the labor costs, non-targeted pesticides application and improving inventory management and production efficiencies.
