Postdoctoral Research Associate
University of Wisconsin-Madison
For the past year I have been an assistant researcher (postdoctoral fellow) with Dr. Jeffrey Endelman at the University of Wisconsin, working with remote sensing information collected through high-throughput phenotyping platforms in tetraploid and diploid potatoes (https://potatobreeding.cals.wisc.edu/people/). My primary focus has been to understand how the spectral reflectance information can be used to improve genetic gains. I am using this data to compare phenomic prediction and genomic prediction, also as a primary and secondary trait for mix modeling, spatial analysis, and genomic association studies. This experience has led me to develop a package in the R environment (FIELDimageR) for analysis of remote sensing images from field trials related to breeding and agriculture in general. More information and the tutorial are freely available on my GitHub (https://github.com/filipematias23/FIELDimageR).
