Kathryn joins us from Agrimetrics, where she led their data science team, providing models and advanced analytics to businesses, researchers, and policymakers to address global food challenges. She worked on the development of an in-season agricultural crop classification product for large geographic areas, using synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite data.
