Faculty of Sciences


Andrew is the image and data analysist at The Plant Accelerator, Australian Plant Phenomics Facility. He is an early career researcher having just submitted his PhD thesis looking at the application of generative deep learning methods to data augmentation for classification of hyperspectral vegetation datasets. His knowledge and experience of hyperspectral vegetation data is put to use at The Plant Accelerator analyzing the data output of the FieldExplorer, a field phenotyping platform that combines high-definition RGB imagery with LiDAR and hyperspectral sensors to measure crop traits, such as growth and health.
