AeroFarms - Sustainable Indoor Vertical Farming Enabling Local Growing All Year Round

April Agee Carroll, PhD is Vice President of Research and Development at AeroFarms®, a high-tech vertical farming company that produces high quality, delicious produce indoors in the heart of communities around the globe. 

As a pioneer in the field of plant phenomics, which is the study of all observable characteristics of a plant, Dr. Carroll utilizes advanced imaging technologies, molecular techniques, and data science to model plant growth and development in context of environmental inputs. These models are then translated to actionable data to manage grower decisions in real-time. The goal is to improve yields, control plant qualities like texture and flavor, and enhance nutritional properties and other plant metabolites.
