Juan is a research engineer with experience in multidisciplinary projects and designing autonomous prototypes and software, especially in precision agriculture, biosecurity, and autonomous search and rescue (SAR) onboard small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). His primary interests comprise autonomous small UAV decision-making, machine learning and computer vision for UAV remote sensing, with a focus on hyperspectral and high-resolution image processing. Juan has over four years of experience in projects involving hyperspectral and high‑resolution image processing from airborne UAV data in areas such as biosecurity and environment monitoring. He has worked for research projects in biosecurity, environment monitoring and time-critical applications such as land SAR to find lost people in collapsed buildings and bushlands.
