Amanda Ramcharan

Postdoctoral Researcher, Pennsylvania State University

I’m currently an Artificial Intelligence postdoctoral researcher in the Entomology department at Penn State University. Thus far I’ve worked on nitrogen cycling in cropping systems, created soil maps and pedotransfer functions with machine learning models, and diagnosed plant diseases with convolutional neural networks. I’m passionate about tackling challenges in our global food and energy systems, and dedicated to working and collaborating on computational tools that address constraints to food security and environmental resources, both in the developing and developed world.
