Ep 58. Droughts, drones and data with David Lamb

Living and working in a regional town is having your cake and eating it too! David Lamb is a distinguished professor at the University of New England and Chief Scientist of the Food Agility CRC. He has spent his professional career at regional universities throughout Australia and wouldn’t have it any other way. The research he does on food production in agriculture can contribute straight back to the community that he lives in.

In an interview with In Situ Science David chats with us about how a dream of flying planes sent him down a career path in applied physics and the use of remote sensing in agricultural landscapes. A career in agricultural science has let him experience every side of science from the pure and theoretical, to the applied end points. In his current role as Chief Scientist of the Food Agility CRC David works to improve the production of food across Australia using emerging technologies in precision agriculture.
