Introduction of The Lab/ Research Field

The ‘Sustainability, Agriculture, and Technology’ (https://www.sat-lab.tomcwanger.com)(SAT) lab aims to contribute towards solving one of the main global challenges: to provide food, fibre, and energy sustainably in existing and new agricultural production systems. As an international team striving for excellence, our work is global, we embrace new technologies and methods, and collaborate openly across disciplines ranging from (agro)ecology, artificial intelligence, to and economics just to name a few. We have and encourage collaborations in China and internationally.


The SAT lab is currently expanding a network of projects to assess landscape-level effects of different crop production systems (e.g., cocoa and rice) on the environment and people. Besides new ways of automated ecosystem and particularly biodiversity monitoring, we are interested in human health and ecosystems service effects as a result of agricultural management under climate change. We also want to use sensors, renewable energy technology, and artificial intelligence to address the food-energy nexus.
