In his talk “Develop Sensing Technologies for Specialty Crops and Fiber”, Dr. Li will give an overview of his recent research projects and explore opportunities of collaborating with engineers and scientists in the Nano Center.
In the past four years, Dr. Li has established a research program focusing on developing sensing and automation technologies to enhance the quality and profitability of specialty crops and cotton. Specifically, he has been primarily working on three research areas: enhance the efficiency of vegetable postharvest sorting and storage through hyperspectral imaging and machine olfaction technologies; measure and reduce bruise damages in blueberry mechanical harvest by developing the “electronic blueberry”; and improve cotton fiber quality through optical sensing and effective ginning.
