Dr Oskar Marko is a researcher highly interested in the application of data analytics in agriculture, who received his PhD in electrical engineering from University of Novi Sad, Serbia. He spent the 3rd year of his undergraduate studies at City University London, where he did his final BEng project in signal processing. He was the leader of BioSense’s team that developed novel machine learning methods for yield prediction, smart seed selection, and optimisation of crop configuration, which secured the 1st prize for BioSense at Syngenta Crop Challenge and CGIAR Inspire Challenge.

His main interests are advanced machine learning algorithms, decision support systems in agriculture and multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. He is actively involved in many Horizon 2020 projects and only last year the total budget of the projects he brought to the Institute equaled €1M.
