I am a scientist interested in optimizing agricultural systems to maximize yield while reducing inputs and enhancing ecosystem services. Many of my questions on SO and related sites are related to the development of software, databases, and statistical analyses to support scientific research aimed at predicting ecosystem response to global change and engineering new systems for sustainable food and fuel production.
Key projects include:
- CCT Data Science: a data science team to support scientific research that I built at the University of Arizona: https://datascience.cct.arizona.edu
- TERRA REF An open access data and computing platform to support high throughput penotyping web github
- PEcAn (Predictive Ecosystem Analyzer), a model-data synthesis framework: code; project website; web interface
- BETYdb, A database of plant traits, crop yields, and computational provenance code; web interface
