About me

I am from a community deeply rooted in agriculture. Motivated by a desire to address the pressing challenges facing his community, particularly in the agricultural sector, I decided to join the CDT. I particularly like the variety of research and networking opportunities offered by the CDT. My favourite thing about Lincoln is the friendly atmosphere. Many residents and visitors comment on the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of Lincoln. It’s often seen as a safe and pleasant place to live. I am going to be conducting my PhD at the University of Lincoln. My career goal is to become an expert in precision agriculture, where I use robotics and AI to optimize farming practices. This role involves data analysis, sensor integration, and the development of algorithms to improve crop yield and resource utilization. I am also looking forward to starting my own company or joining a startup in the agtech sector, where I can innovate and develop new agricultural technologies such as autonomous tractors, drone-based crop monitoring, or AI-driven decision support systems. Having a strong passion for teaching, I would like to work as a research scientist in academia, government research institutions, or private companies to develop cutting-edge robotic systems and AI algorithms tailored to agriculture. This role involves designing, implementing, and evaluating robotic solutions for tasks such as harvesting, weeding, and monitoring crops. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music or reading self-development books.
