Christopher Lapszynski


Major: Imaging Science Ph.D.

Third year Imaging Science Ph.D. Student, and member of the GRIT Laboratory within the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Laboratory, Chris received his bachelors in Imaging Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2013. Prior to returning to academia in 2016 Chris supported research and development efforts as an industry contractor engineering solutions to immediate world problems utilizing the appropriate sensor modalities and algorithmic approaches, while supporting multiple major field campaigns. His current research endeavors (soon to include polarization) seek to exploit hyper spectral data sets to derive geophysical parameters obtaining sediment strength and surface trafficability estimates of a scene. Chris’ growing expertise are in visible and near infrared phenomenology; design and implementation of novel imaging and ground based systems; material optical properties measurement and radiative transfer modeling, and radiometric calibration.
