Bio:

Received a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics in 2005 and a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Imaging Science in 2009 from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Served as a calibration scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center from 2009 to 2014 on the Landsat Calibration and Validation team. Specialized in the calibration of the Thermal Infrared Sensor (TIRS) onboard Landsat 8 and was directly involved in the definition of the calibration methodologies, execution of characterization tests, and analyses of instrument performance data, both pre-flight and on-orbit. Currently continue my Landsat work as a senior research scientist at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Also involved with modeling and simulation efforts to support NASA’s SOLARIS sensor and the future Landsat 9/TIRS-2 sensor and assist in the radiometric calibration of the New Horizons/LEISA instrument. I have a number of peer-reviewed scientific journal publications and conference proceedings and have presented at various remote sensing-related conferences. In addition, I support and advise a number of graduate and undergraduate students.
