Wes Bonelli

Graduate Student
2408 Miller Plant Sciences
Research Interests:

To understand how plant phenotypes develop we need full-coverage, high-resolution data in space and time. This is especially difficult for roots. I am interested in building open-source, web-accessible phenotyping tools, then using these together with imaging hardware developed in my host lab to study root system architecture. This work involves web/HPC/embedded systems development, data engineering, image analysis, mathematical shape characterization, and morphological growth modeling/simulation.
