Dr. Celina Gomez is an Assistant Professor of CEA in the Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture at Purdue University. The research component of her program includes evaluation of new crops and innovative production systems for the controlled environment horticulture industry. She leads several projects on 1) indoor propagation of high-value crops, particularly on leveraging indoor farming technologies to acclimate hard-to-root young plants; 2) urban gardening to support increasing consumer interest in growing vegetables; and 3) lighting for indoor plant production, especially on plant responses to light spectrum or quantity. In collaboration with industry partners, she established the ‘Research on Urban Gardening’ consortium to help develop research-based solutions for the horticulture industry and for consumers in the edible gardening sector.
