Major: Imaging Science Ph.D.

A Ph.D. student at Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science. He received his Masters in Electrical Engineering from Kate Gleason before deciding to join the PhD program with keen interest in remote sensing. His research revolves around dynamic data-driven application for hyperspectral imaging, with focus on aerial object tracking. His research goal is to create an adaptive tracker that can smartly shift between hundreds of spectral bands as required to track an object of specific color and material at real time speed. A few challenges in this approach are shadow, glint, cloud cover and standard occlusion and his research involves tackling these situations one by one before merging them together.
