Olee is a Ph.D. student at the Townsend Lab (co-supervised by Dr. Phil Townsend and Dr. Amanda Gevens) researching the capacities of imaging spectroscopy for early disease detection in potatoes. She is interested in applying remote sensing technologies in the agricultural and conservation domains, in particular data analysis and imaging techniques for site-specific monitoring and decision support systems. During her master’s in Germany, she developed an open-source workflow that involves object-based image analysis and deep learning techniques to detect invasive species in grassland using UAV RGB imagery. Before joining the lab, Olee worked as a research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry and developed an R package (rtry) to facilitate the pre-processing of plant trait data.
