Here is a link to my CV providing more detail about my career and a list of publications.

More information about my publications, including abstracts, some pdf's, and BibTeX citation information can be found on my CIS web page.

Research Interests
My general interests are the investigation of physical and geophysical processes and properties through analysis of remotely sensed data.  In particular, I am interested in the specialties of hyperspectral and multispectral image analysis.  Currently, we are applying hyperspectral imaging techniques to the problem of hard target detection as well as large area image search.  We are also developing new image processing methods based on techniques from areas of mathematics such as graph theory and applied topology. I am also involved in our efforts in active, LIDAR imaging techniques. In addition, I am the Director of the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Laboratory (DIRS).
