About the Project
For several years now we have been developing mathematical models of plant nutrient and water uptake. However, the uptake of these models directly by experimentalists is limited because they require specialist programming skills and familiarity with user interfaces. However, practitioners, such as farmers and fertiliser companies, do want to use models and computer platforms to inform their decision making.
Within this PhD project we will develop a web based platform to enable experimentalists, farmers and government policy makers to use these models over the web in a flexible manner to optimise the soil management practices. This requires the creation of a web based user interface and a user friendly technology to enable modular mathematical models contributed by a range of different theoreticians to be joined. This needs to be done in a manner which maximises the uptake and impact of the models. Thus the PhD will involve user community building and engagement.
