Companies: Massey University (Palmerston North, New Zealand) & Topcon Precision Agriculture (Livermore, California, USA). Duty & responsibility: Soil mapping, soil sample collection and preservation, field data collection, soil & crop management control study using go-pro cameras, RTK, Radar, GPS, ArcGIS, SUV driving, quad driving, working directly with different stakeholders in remote areas of New Zealand and tractors driving equipped with agricultural sprayer, tillage and seeding equipment. Outcome: I published a report paper on how geospatial technology can be used to improve productivity and efficiency in the agriculture sector.
I joined Massey as a PhD student and I worked casually since then as a Lab demonstrator and did some other casual jobs including tutoring. I enjoyed working both on my PhD and in helping students. The research after my PhD had been different and challenging, but I enjoyed most of it.
