Previously employed in the home automation industry, Mark Cardamis, UNSW PhD student attached to the ‘IoT for indoor cropping’ project, is keen on research with real-world application. This is why he’s returned to his alumnus and is working on a collaborative industry-led CRC project to develop machine-learning systems enabling growers to manage indoor crops from anywhere via smartphone.
In 2008, Mark Cardamis completed a Bachelor of Engineering with a Major in Mechatronics (First Class Honours) from UNSW Sydney. Back then, his research focused on control systems. Cardamis was awarded the RS Components Prize for Engineering Excellence for having the best performance in the final year of the Mechatronics program.
