I am interested in scientific methods for satellite and airborne remote sensing applications in water resources, disaster response and agriculture. Before coming to Stanford, I worked as a support scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and as a Remote Sensing analyst at a successful Silicon Valley start up. I hold a M.Sc. from Boston College (full scholarship) and a B.S. (with honors) from Franklin & Marshall College.
