I am a computer vision research engineer pursuing my Master’s in Artificial Intelligence, under the direction of Dr. Deepak Mishra from the Department of Geography. My thesis is focused on remote sensing and 3D vision tasks using state-of-the-art Neural Radiance Field methods. 

I graduated Summa Cum Laude (GPA > 3.9) from the University of Georgia in 2023, with my Bachelor's in Computer Science.

I currently conduct research at the UGA Small Satellite Research Laboratory (SSRL), where I serve as Payload Software Lead for the Multiview Onboard Computational Imager (MOCI) cube satellite mission. My research involves building and refining the computer vision software onboard MOCI using GPU-accelerated parallel processing.

I also work as a Distributed Spacecraft Autonomy Intern at NASA Ames Research Center, where I am currently developing a custom Neural Radiance Field pipeline for generating 3D scenes of the lunar surface from satellite imagery. 

Dissertation/Thesis Title:
Neural Radiance Field Methods for Satellite Imagery of Polar and Arid Climates

computer vision, remote sensing, neural radiance fields
