Dr. Bowen’s current research efforts are centered on the
ecophysiology of wine grapes. She uses geographic information
system (GIS) tools, sensor networks and aerial imaging to
characterize spatial variations in vineyard environments. Her
work informs innovative approaches to precision vineyard
management. Her GIS work has been used throughout British
Columbia to describe local terroirs, guide sustainable management
and define appellations.
Dr. Bowen studied at the University of California, Davis, where
she received her doctorate in 1987. She continued with
postdoctoral research at the New York State Agricultural
Experiment Station. In 1990, she joined Agriculture and Agri-Food
Canada as a research scientist. She has led the viticulture
program at Summerland Research and Development Centre since 2000.
In addition to these roles, she is also a professional affiliate
at Brock University’s Cool Climate Viticulture and Oenology
Institute and an adjunct professor at the University of British
Join us for her live presentation, “Spatial
Revelations: Monitoring, Imaging and Mapping to Characterize
Vineyard Environments,” on June 22 at the ASEV
National Conference in San Diego, California.
