Dr. Liu is the postdoctoral research associate in Prof. Alexander Bucksch’s Computational Plant Science lab since in June 2017. He is an expert in Computer Vision techniques and 3D image reconstruction. His research focuses on unrevealing the underground 3D root structure and discover the connection between 3D traits and genotypes. Before joining UGA, Suxing was a research associate in the Arkansas Biosciences Institute at Arkansas State University from 2014-2017. It was there were he first found his passion for plants as a lead researcher in Plant Imaging Consortium. He collaborated with Noah Fahlgren from Danforth Plant Science Center and contributed plant leaf segmentation module for 2D plant image processing platform PlantCV. He has three years of working experience in the 3D Computer Vision Industry in Europe (Sweden and Spain) before move to US.
Plant scientists decode the language of a plant in a similar way as computer scientists to develop tools use the programming languages. My research focuses on unrevealing the underground 3D root structure and discover the connection between 3D traits and genotypes.
