Dr. Wayne Daley Named GTRI Fellow for FY 2014
Dr. Wayne Daley has been named one of four Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) Fellows. The Fellows Program recognizes outstanding full-time principal researchers based on achievement and alignment with a critical GTRI area of research. GTRI Fellows are awarded discretionary funding for two years based on a charge and charter to contribute to the advancement of a key GTRI technical area. Once selected, GTRI Fellows retain the title for the remainder of their careers and are involved in the selection of new Fellows.
Daley’s GTRI Fellows proposal will investigate methods to advance GTRI in the interaction of engineering and biology in the design of resilient systems for handling natural products. He also works with Direct-to-Discovery, a Georgia Tech initiative to bring researchers and scientists into the K-12 classroom via video conferencing.
An expert in computer vision and intelligent systems, Daley serves as the associate division chief for GTRI’s Food Processing Technology Division and has served as the principal investigator on several Agricultural Technology Research Program projects, the most recent being the Poultry Growout House Monitoring research collaboration with the University of Georgia.
