Welcome!

Dr. Sankaran works in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering with a research emphasis in Agricultural Automation Engineering. Her research focus is on sensor technologies for crop phenotype monitoring to support plant breeding, crop plant research, and precision agriculture applications. Her work involves development and integration of opto-electronic, biological, and chemical sensor technologies for non-invasive, rapid, continuous monitoring of plant responses to environment, abiotic and biotic stressors, and other applications.

Research Interests

  • Automated system development for agricultural applications.
  • Proximal and remote sensing (UAV) technologies for high-throughput crop phenotyping.
  • Molecular phenotyping using olfactory protein-based biosensors and other techniques.
