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 am Affiliated Scientist with the Research Application Laboratory (RAL) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder CO. I am Research Fellow with the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign IL. I am a member of the advisory committee of the United National Environmental Programme (UNEP), division of Disasters and Early Warning Assessment (DEWA).

My big passion is sailing. I am 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.
