Want to know more about my career? Go to my LinkedIn

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.

A few selected papers, blog posts, and various news.
