Remote Sensing & Computation: Using Physics for Society


The thread running through all my research is the use of observation and automation to facilitate scientific discovery and societal benefit. This has been applied in the area of Earth System Science. A particular focus has been determining atmospheric composition using earth observation for health applications.

The key tools that we use are large scale computer automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, massively parallel processing and data storage, automatic code generation, and a fleet of autonomous robotic vehicles.
