Instructor(s)

Alex Wong

Alex Wong received his bachelor's degree in cell/developmental molecular biology at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. From there he earned his master's degree in plant pathology at Virginia Tech with Dr. Mizuho Nita, where he studied biological control of crown gall disease in grapevines. After graduating, Alex joined Dr. Walt Mahaffee's lab as a Ph.D. student in the Oregon State University botany and plant pathology department in 2018 and currently studies fungicide resistance and integrative management of grape powdery mildew and Botrytis bunch rot.

Dr. Yu Jiang

Dr. Yu Jiang joined Cornell AgriTech as an Assistant Research Professor of Systems Engineering and Data Analytics for Specialty Crops in 2019 right after the completion of his Ph.D. degree in Biological and Agricultural Engineering at the University of Georgia. He leads the Cyber-Agricultural Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR) lab and focuses on system engineering and data analytics for specialty crops. Currently, his lab is developing a robotic multimodal, multiscale system that enables data-driven research and management of grape diseases from lab to field. He serves as PI and co-PI on multiple projects that are funded by federal agencies such as USDA as well as industrial agencies such as New York Wine Grape Foundation and Pennsylvania Wine Marketing & Research.
