Ankita Raturi

Assistant Professor
Purdue University

Ankita Raturi is an assistant professor at Purdue University, where she runs the Agricultural Informatics Lab, focused on human-centered design, information modeling, and software engineering, for increased resilience in food and agricultural systems. Ankita’s current work includes: the development of modular, open source, decision support tools (e.g., for cover cropping); designing a reconfigurable data pipeline for on-farm participatory research; data science for autonomous and precision agriculture; and information modeling for the development of domain-relevant data services (e.g., for agronomic plant data); and information management and design for diversified farming systems. She is also kickstarting work that seeks to support farmers, eaters, and local food advocates through informatics for community food resilience, in times of pandemic and beyond.
