Research Interests
My formal background is in Computational Science and Remote Sensing, and my research focuses on the development and application of computational algorithms for the analysis of spatio-temporal remote sensing, numerical modeling and social media “Big Data” related to environmental hazards and renewable energy.  I focus on problems related to the fusion of heterogenous data at different temporal and spatial scale.


I have been Affiliated Scientist with the Research Application Laboratory (RAL) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder CO since 2012. I am also Adjunct Professor with the Lamont-Doherety Earth Observatory at Columbia University.  I serve as co-chair for the executive committee and program committee for the American Geophysical Union, focus group on Natural Hazards.


Other irrelevant interests
My big passion is sailing.  I have been a volunteer instructor at the US Naval Academy (USNA), in the Offshore Sailing Training Squadron (OSTS) program.  I sailed over 4000 offshore miles.  I do not own a cell phone.
