Dr Carmen Teixeira
Post Doctoral Fellow
Carmen is a Post-Doctoral Fellow working on the collation and analysis of historic and current pasture growth datasets. She is working with Manaaki-Whenua scientists to translate the data into algorithms that can be used to generate national scale maps of sub clover growth and development.
“My work also includes the creation of videos and compilation of photos documenting the on-farm processes used in data collection to ensure farmers wanting to generate their own data can use standard procedures. The aim is to integrate all such data into a National Forage Database that I am helping to develop. My work covers aspects in both Themes 2 and 3.”
