Francisco Pinto

Associate Scientist - Wheat Physiology

Francisco Pinto is a remote sensing specialist with a background in agronomy and plant physiology. He is in charge of the high-throughput phenotyping platforms in the Global Wheat Program.

Pinto’s research focuses on the use remote sensing and image processing techniques for field phenotyping of wheat, aiming at improving genetic gains in yield and quantifying physiological traits. He is also interested in using remote sensing for understanding ecophysiological dynamics of crops at different spatio-temporal scales.
