I currently work as an image scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, TN. Prior to ORNL, I worked in the DC area for more than 15 years as a contractor in matters of remote sensing. Prior to my work in DC, I worked for both the Naval Oceanographic Office and the Naval Research Laboratory (DC and Stennis Space Center, MS). My interests involve the use of space and airborne remote sensing information for the solution to a multitude of problems. My specific interests are in radiative transfer in the near-shore environment, spectral detection algorithm development, and machine learning utilizing remotely sensed data. My graduate work is from both Emory University (in physics) and the University of Southern Mississippi in coordination with Naval Research Laboratory at Stennis Space Center, MS (in Scientific Computing).
