G. Evelyn Hutchinson Postdoctoral Associates

Quentin Bateux

Quentin Bateux, Ph.D. 

Cluster 1 – Deep Learning and Image Processing for Transformational Environmental Science 

Research description: Quentin is interested in applying computer vision to the analysis of herbarium images at a large scale, in order to automatically extract meaningful features that can be related to phenotypic characteristics that can be exploited by ecologists.

Fellowship dates: July 2022 - June 2024

Nadia Zikiou

Nadia Zikiou, Ph.D. 

Cluster 1 – Deep Learning and Image Processing for Transformational Environmental Science 

Research description: The main mission of Nadia’s work remains the study of environmental changes and Land use /Land cover. This work is based on Sparse Representation methods, Machine Learning (SVM and CNN) and high-resolution image analysis.

Fellowship dates: July 2022 - June 2024

Yen-Hua Huang

Yen-Hua Huang, Ph.D. 

Cluster 2 – Trophic Ecology of African Savannas

Research description: Yen-Hua’s research focuses on interactions among diseases, hosts, and the environment. He has examined how the environment drives diseases through host ecology. He plans to evaluate potential influence of diseases on the environment via host responses.

Fellowship dates: August 2022 - July 2024

Nicholas O'Mara

Nicholas O’Mara, Ph.D. 

Cluster 2 – Trophic Ecology of African Savannas

Research description: Nicholas uses molecular and isotopic indicators of past environmental conditions preserved in sedimentary archives to try to better understand the interactions between climate, vegetation, and wildfires in African savanna ecosystems.

Fellowship dates: September 2022 - August 2024
