DCS Conference on Image Analysis in AgroFood Industry 2021

April 13, 2021
Zoom online meeting
14.00 (CET)

The Dutch Chemometrics Society (DCS) is excited to announce a half-day free online conference on Image Analysis in AgroFood Industry. The conference will feature two renown experts on image analysis: José Manuel Prats-Montalbán and Puneet Mishra.


José Manuel Prats-Montalbán is Associate Professor at the Department of Applied Statistics of the Polytechnic University of Valencia (UPV) since 2010. He finished his studies in Industrial Engineering in 1998, joining the labor market as a quality engineer and consultant in quality systems. In 2000, he joined the Polytechnic University of Valencia, finishing his Ph.D. Thesis "Statistical Control of Processes by means of Multivariate Analysis of Images" in September 2005, under the supervision of Professor Alberto Ferrer. This thesis constitutes the basis of his research lines in multivariate analysis of images, related to Magnetic Resonance Medical Image Analysis and Image Analysis for Industry 4.0. At the DCS conference he will talk about “Multivariate Image Analysis: basics and applications in AgroFood Industry”.


Puneet Mishra works as a researcher in advanced sensing technologies and chemometrics at Wageningen Food and Biobased Research, The Netherlands.  He holds a PhD in pure and analytical chemistry from the center for process analytics and control technologies (CPACT), UK. During his PhD, he was a Marie Curie Fellow for the H2020 ITN called ‘MODLIFE’ which aimed at developing advanced data modelling tools for process and product industries. He has more than 42 research articles. He has won several prestigious awards in the domain of process analysis and chemometrics. Recently, he won two times in the row i.e. 2020-2021, the young chemometrician award from the ‘French Chemometrics Society’. His interest includes non-destructive sensing, chemometrics and artificial intelligence. He is looking forward to welcoming you to his talk on “Close range hyperspectral imaging of agricultural plants”.
