I am the Chief Technology Officer of Atlas AI, a small
tech startup that generates geospatial intelligence on
agricultural and economic trends across the developing world.

Before joining Atlas AI, I was a research scientist at Stanford University, where I worked with David Lobell
at the Center on Food Security and the Environment (FSE), the Department of
Earth System Science, and the Sustainability and Artificial Intelligence Lab. I worked on estimating crop yield,
classifying crop type, and detecting management practices in several countries including USA, Zambia, Tanzania,
Kenya, Uganda, and India. I still contribute, although marginally, to the group's research efforts.
I got my Ph.D. with Mike Goulden, in the Department of Earth System Science at UC Irvine. My dissertation was
on tracking post-fire recovery of vegetation from satellite, but I devoted a lot of my time on illumination
corrections algorithms for optical imagery. As a side research track, I explored the potential of gaming and
photographic technology for field measurement with scientific standards.
Some Stuff I do.
