Anastasia Volkova

CEO and Founder, FluroSat

Anastasia is an aeronautical engineer completing her PhD in autonomous drone navigation. She has experience ranging from projects with the NASA robots onboard International Space Station to managing 370 person team for UEFA. Anastasia is a 2017 Amelia Earhart Fellow recognised for her commitment to advancing the application of aerospace engineering. Her passion for the real-world application has found expression in the startup, FluroSat, which is closing the gap between the application of remote sensing technology in precision agriculture and the insights available in the field. FluroSat in less than two years has conducted three commercial monitoring seasons and is actively expanding across Australia and into the US commodity crop market. Most recently Anastasia has been named 2018 Women Creating Change by NSW/ACT (Australian Capital Territory and NSW) Young Achiever Award, which her colleagues promptly nicknamed “Chief Disrupter”.
