My name is Dr. Brianna B. Posadas and I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Plant and Environmental Sciences at Virginia Tech where I am the PI of the Posadas Lab . I am also a fellow with the Center for Food Systems and Community Transformation and affiliated with the Center for Advanced Innovation in Agriculture. My research is focused on the intersection of agriculture, technology, and user-centered design.
When I completed my PhD at the University of Florida, I was the first Latina to earn a doctorate from the department of Computer and Information Science and Engineering. I received my master of science in agricultural and biological engineering also at UF and my bachelor of science in engineering from Harvey Mudd College.
