My current research consists of developing a pixel by pixel cloud detection algorithm for the NASA MAIA mission set to launch as early as 2021. I'm also really interested in high performance computing and deep learning algorithms, and have been developing a convolution neural network cloud particle classifier in my spare time, among other things, and plan to develop something similar for the MAIA cloud mask later on in my graduate degree. Feel free to check out my GitHub to see if anything sparks your interest.
