Rob Lind Bsc, MSc, PhD, Fres Imaging Technology Specialist at Syngenta


I originally trained as an insect biologist and have worked for Syngenta and its legacy companies for 20+ years in the business area of agriculture and plant sciences. I moved into computer vision full time 6 years ago and lead the imaging team and the image analysis network within Syngenta to develop hardware and software solutions to take non-subjective and quantitative measurements. Much of my work is focused on plants to measure different vegetative parameters that can be related back to their genetics, we call this digital phenotyping. Looking to the future, I’m focusing on deep learning approaches in computer vision to increase the accuracy of assessment within my workflows.
