Research Project: USDA ARS Research Apprenticeship Program at University of Texas at Arlington - Auburn

Location: Soil Dynamics Research

Project Number: 6010-11120-009-029-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 4, 2023
End Date: Sep 3, 2028

1. Advancing data-driven research in climate-smart agriculture and the development of the Mobil Inelastic Neutron Scattering (MINS) system. 2. Utilized mathematical results to program and improve MINS performance and applicabilities.

This project is to support a research internship program for a student to work with ARS scientists on agriculture data science, Monto Carlo simulations, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) research. The Project methodology and program activities include: Hand-on training for stats, Monta Carlo simulation, programming and introduction to agriculture engineering. Working on summer project planning under faculty and ARS scientists. Research Apprenticeship program jointly mentored by ARS and University of Texas at Arlington scientists. The program elements are: Agricultural data research that are jointly supervised by ARS scientists and UTA faculty. Remote working from ARS, workplace is at UTA campus. UTA provides office space and computation facilities. The research topics are in Climate-smart agriculture particularly in data analysis using Moto Carlo Simulations, modeling and machine learning.
