He completed a two-year postdoctoral stay (2009-2011) at the University of Reading (UK) under the supervision of Dr Anne Verhoef. In 2012 he became part of the teaching staff of the Agroforestry Engineering Area of the University of Seville, a position he currently occupies. His lines of research have focused mainly on the use of new technologies for irrigation management, deficit irrigation and modeling of the response of crops to water deficit.
In 2021 he was recognized with the VIII Losada Villasante award in the Agrifood Research category for his project “Digital phenotyping, the revolution in plant improvement based on data analysis and machine learning”.
These are some of the main lines of research in which Professor Gregorio Egea has been working in recent years.
He develops his work mainly in the field of irrigation management, deficit irrigation and modeling of the response of crops to water deficit.
Smart irrigation management
RHEA is focused on the design, development, and testing of a new generation of automatic and robotic systems for both chemical and physical –mechanical and thermal– effective weed management.
