Mr Deepak Gautam

Postdoctoral Fellow

School of Agriculture, Food and Wine

Faculty of Sciences


Deepak’s research theme is on the development of tools and algorithms for quantitative remote sensing of vegetation using Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). He makes use of state-of-the-art airborne sensors (visible, multispectral, hyperspectral, thermal, and LiDAR) for precision agriculture and environmental applications. His current focus is on the use of airborne thermal, multispectral, and visible images to drive precision irrigation.

Deepak's current research interest includes:

  • Accurate georeferencing of the UAS-based sensor.
  • UAS-based camera and LiDAR for high-precision surveying and mapping.
  • Calibration and validation of small spectral and thermal sensor for quantitative remote sensing.
  • Quantitative remote sensing using a multispectral hyperspectral and thermal sensor.
  • Precision irrigation, driven by remote quantification of water stress in grapevine.
  • Precision agriculture.
