Digital AgTech Integration Leader

Corteva

United States of America

As the Digital AgTech Integration Leader at Corteva, I have the opportunity to work with great teams to deliver innovative data driven decision support tools that add value to our customers. In my career that has spanned government, academic, startup and commercial enterprises, my interests have always aligned with developing solutions that fit into the ESG space.

My primary interest is in creating and delivering digital solutions that leverage remote sensing, spatio-temporal data, and physical process or predictive models that address factors which drive, impact or limit biological productivity, ecological services and biotic health. In the last several years I have focused on delivering new solutions like LANDVisor to market.

LANDVisor is aimed at improving rangelands and pastures for sustainable practices to manage and enhance the livestock business of our customers globally. Learnings and capabilities from LANDVisor are being rapidly expanded into adjacent digital services across functions at Corteva. It is an exciting time to be working in the remote sensing space and I look forward to the step changes to come in remote sensing that will span from global satellite imaging to ubiquitous sensing that drills down to the plant level for helping us to make better decisions for a growing world.
