I have a background in remote sensing, cyber infrastructure, data science and forestry. My current interests include developing data services and visualization platform for remote-sensed and in-situ datasets. At ORNL DAAC, I am leading NASA’s MODIS/VIIRS subsetting platform and soil moisture data distribution platform. I have a Ph.D. from Virginia Tech and M.S. in Photogrammetry and Geoinformatics from Stuttgart, Germany.
