Computer Science Student Presents Research to the California State Legislature

Will Carrara presented his student research to the California State Legislature at the California State University (CSU) Agricultural Research Institute (ARI) Legislative Briefing on October 24, 2019 in Sacramento, CA.

Carrara’s research focuses on multi-sensor satellite data fusion for irrigation management applications. His research is part of a CSUMB project which quantifies the benefits of data-driven approaches for the management of irrigation and fertilizer, and it is supported by CSU ARI.

“Giving this talk in the State Capital was a wonderful experience and helped solidify my career ambitions for working at NASA.”

Carrara will graduate with a B.S. degree in Computer Science in December 2019. He plans to continue his research by working under the Cooperative Agreement between CSUMB and NASA Ames Research Center as a software engineer at NASA Ames Research Center.
