Agro-food quality process monitoring based on non-destructive optical techniques: I am experienced in Biospeckle Imaging and Laser-light Backscattering Imaging.

Currently I am involved in a Hyperspectral and Multispectral Imaging-based project. I’d like to broaden my knowledge to other techniques such as X-ray Imaging, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Raman Imaging, Fluorescence Imaging, and Thermography.

Image Processing and Machine Learning applications in agro-food sector
