ECE Student James Nelson Works to Change the Wine Industry as a Keller Pathway Fellow
James Nelson entered UC Davis as an undergraduate student in electrical engineering. In his senior year he started an internship at the UC Davis Teaching and Research Winery. This work led to a T.J. Rodgers Fellowship in Electrical and Computer Engineering, which supported him for his master's and his Ph.D. studies.
Now as a Keller Pathway Program Fellow, Nelson's research focuses on applying sensors and control systems to measure, understand, control and optimize the production of wine. More broadly, he is interested in the application of sensors and sensor networks for sustainable food and ag industries.
