Research Fellow, Crop Physiology, Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation, The University of Queensland
Barbara George-Jaeggli is a farmer and researcher at the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovations and is particularly interested in sustainable food production. She has a Master of Science degree in Biology from ETH Zuerich in Switzerland and a PhD in Crop Physiology from the University of Queensland. Recently, she has been involved in interdisciplinary research developing innovative field phenotyping methods as part of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Translational Photosynthesis. The proximal and remote-sensing data and image analysis pipeline that she has helped develop gives plant breeders the tools to vastly increase their germplasm evaluation capacity and speeds up the process of generating more productive and climate-resilient cereal varieties.
