Michael Grady Saunders


Major: Imaging Science MS

A full-time graduate student working toward a Master’s degree in Imaging Science. Grady received his Bachelor’s degree with honors from East Tennessee State University in 2017, where he majored in Digital Media and minored in Mathematics. His scientific interests revolve around stocastic light-transport simulation and procedural modeling techniques in the context of 3D computer graphics and computer-generated environments. As such, Grady’s ongoing work in the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing group involves the development of software components to assist in the construction of 3D scenes for image simulation with DIRSIG5, the 5th edition of the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Image Generation software.
