About Dr. Gongora-Canul

His research focuses on plant disease epidemiology in corn and wheat diseases by using quantitative epidemiology, plant-sensing technology and digital plant phenomics. His research explores the use of emerging technologies, including high-throughput phenotyping to detect, quantify, and predict plant diseases.
