About Me: I am a young lecturer and researcher in machine learning to study how plants grow.
I am a Lecturer in Data Science at the Edinburgh Napier University. I study how plants grow in their environment using cutting-edge machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms. We think we know everything that should be known in plants, but actually there are some many open questions that are awaiting scientists to answer them. What is the optimal environmental condition to get better and nicer plants? This is the core area of my research.
My Work: We use computer algorithms to study the growth of plants in their environment.
