Daniel Jiménez R.

CIAT
Scientist
Colombia
Colombian agronomist Daniel Jiménez is a scientist at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT). He holds a PhD in Applied Biological Sciences (Agriculture) from Ghent University, Belgium and currently is the leader of the group of Big Data at CIAT. Daniel’s data-mining approach to agronomy is now rapidly gaining proponents at all levels – from farmers and technicians to government decision makers and agricultural experts. This has put Daniel in the vanguard of scientists who are demonstrating how big data analysis can help address key challenges for tropical agriculture – such as closing yield gaps, and coping with climate change. In recognition of this innovative work, the United Nations selected Daniel’s research to be one of the two winners of its Big Data Climate Challenge, which was awarded during the UN Climate Summit held during September 2014 in New York City. Daniel has also worked for Bioversity International and the University Of Applied Sciences Of Western Switzerland (HEIG-VD), and has been a consultant for Agricultural Research for Development (CIRAD).
