1880 Pratt Dr, Rm 117
Blacksburg, VA 24061 - 0493

Overview

My appointment consists of 60% research and 40% teaching. The foundation of my research program evolves around smart farm ecosystem which fuses physical and biological systems through advanced sensors, control systems, actuators, and communication technologies. I collaborate with the faculty within the center of advanced innovations in agriculture; and currently am developing two courses in regard to precision agriculture technologies and IoT for smart farm.

Expertise

  • Robotics and Automation for Agricultural Applications
  • Sensing Systems and Data Analytics for Precision Agriculture
  • Machine Systems and Machines Management

Education

  • Ph.D. Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering, University of Kentucky, 2017
  • M.S. Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Kentucky, 2017
  • M.S. Mechanics of Agricultural Machinery, University of Tehran, 2010
  • B.S. Mechanics of Agricultural Machinery, University of Tehran, 2006

The overarching goal of my research is to provide engineering and scientific solutions to agricultural production challenges through AI-assisted smart farm. One of the central themes of my research seeks to improve the efficiency of various agricultural operations for humans in specialty crops production (e.g., harvesting) and for machines in row crops production (e.g., spraying). My research also aims at optimal management of input (e.g., nutrients) to improve agricultural production productivity and sustainability while sustaining the quality.
