Amie Owen is originally from York but currently lives in Lincoln. Amie has spent the last five years working in electrical engineering, in the automotive sector. Prior to this Amie studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Leeds. Amie is very interested in the electrical systems and software which enable autonomous driving in vehicles. She would like to apply this interest by exploring the application of autonomous systems, and robotics use, in agriculture, focusing particularly on machine learning and artificial intelligence. Amie is keen to carry out more research-based work to investigate future technologies and knows it is an exciting but challenging time for the agri-food industry. Amie’s long-term goal is to be in a role where she can contribute to reducing the environmental impact of agricultural practices and preserve wildlife. In her spare time Amie likes to cycle, read and play the ukulele. Amie will be carrying out her PhD study at the University of Lincoln.
