Dr. Amor VM Ines group works on the integrations of advanced modeling techniques, in-situ/proximal/remote sensing and advanced climate information for decision supports in agriculture and water management. Using agricultural models, data science, simulation and optimization techniques, we seek to understand the complex processes of the agricultural production system (at different scales) and its interactions with climate, soil, plants/livestock and management to: elucidate adaptation and mitigation strategies to climate variability and change; assess adoption potential and impact of new technologies on smallholder farming system performance and food security; study potentials of social-ecological agricultural systems; elucidate drivers of sustainable intensification and improved soil and water management. We are interested to explore the whole value-chain of data generation integration-modeling-value-added information dissemination for a smarter decision support in agriculture.
