About this project
The project is part of a cluster of PhD projects entitled Sustainable Terrestrial and Maritime Food Systems: Environmental Technologies and their Implications. This particular project will look at the integration of smart sensors reading a wide range of physical variables, e.g., water table levels, rainfall, atmospheric pressure, temperature, crop luminosity, soil quality, etc. Use of this data has the potential to increase agricultural efficiency and reduce environmental impact. A combination of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AL) will combine this continuous stream of data with external data, such as highly accurate weather forecasts, and convert it into quality information in real-time to create tools which will inform farmers’ operational decisions in relation to soil and crop management.
The research aims of this project are:

Sustainable Terrestrial and Maritime Food Systems: Environmental Technologies and their Implications
This PhD project is part of a cluster of inter-related, inter-disciplinary projects, which between them focus on the implications of environmental technologies for the practices of people involved in primary food production on both land and sea. Our food and energy production systems contribute significantly to environmental problems, including climate change, and technological solutions are often proposed as ways of reducing their carbon footprints. Yet these can be challenging to implement and can have unanticipated effects on the practices of those engaged in farming and fishing. This cluster of projects involves a combination of scientific projects aiming to develop and test different environmental technologies, and social science projects aiming to look at the effects on the practices of primary food producers as society aims for a low carbon world.

Eligibility and entry requirements
Please see the University of Hull webpage
This opportunity comes with a Home fee waiver only, which will not cover the full International fee. You will therefore need to pay the difference between the Home fee and the International fee and will need to provide evidence that you have sufficient funds to cover this.
