My name is Yusuf Hendrawan and I am an agricultural engineer. I am an associate professor in Agricultural Engineering Department, University of Brawijaya, Malang, East Java, Indonesia. I received my PhD degree in 2012 from Bio-instrumentation, Control and Systems (BICS) Engineering Laboratory, Osaka Prefecture University, Japan, under the supervision of Prof. Haruhiko Murase. My major research interest is speaking plant approach (SPA) in fully controlled bio-production system such as plant factory. My researches are closely related to the implementation of bio-computing for bio-production. My previous research was conducted on the utilization of machine vision as non-destructive sensing to detect water stress in plant. My areas of expertise i.e.: (1) nature-inspired algorithms; (2) machine vision; (3) texture analysis; (4) artificial neural network; (5) feature selection; (6) bio-robotics in bio-production systems; (7) pattern recognition; (8) intelligent system; (9) bio-environmental control; and (10) precision agriculture.
