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 scales.


I have been Affiliated Scientist with the Research Application Laboratory (RAL) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado, since 2012, and Adjunct Professor with the Lamont-Doherety Earth Observatory at Columbia University since January 2017.

Chair of Scientific Committees

I am the Co-Chair for the Research Computing Cyber Infrastructure (RCCI) under the Vice President for Research at Penn State,  Co-Chair for NCAR's Education and Outreach activity board of NCAR, and Co-Chair for the NSF EarthCube Nomination Committee.  In the past I served as co-chair for the executive committee and program committee for the American Geophysical Union, focus group on Natural Hazards.

Membership of Scientific Committees

I  am a member of the User Working Group of the Socio-Economic Data and Application Center (SEDAC), which is part of NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS).  I also serve on NCAR’s Non-NSF Proposal Review Panel.  In the past I served on the advisory board of the Division of Disaster and Early Warning Assessment (DEWA) of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP).

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.
