Jie Wu

Lecturer at Nanjing Agricultural University

Biography.

Contact details:

Jie gained his PhD from China Agricultural University in 2013, where he studied “virtual plants” and is now a lecturer at Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU) and a member of the joint EI-NAU phenomics research laboratory. He is currently working on root phenotyping hardware research and development, as roots play a key role in resource acquisition and perception of environmental signals. Compared with the above-ground organs, the phenotypic information on root systems has been largely neglected due to the inaccessibility of the soil and the complexity of its structure. Jie’s main work focuses on the construction of a novel root growth monitoring platform called RhizoChamber-Monitor.
