Primary Research Interests

Microwave remote sensing, scatterometry, radar, synthetic aperture radar (SAR), resolution enhancement and irregular sampling theory, signal processing, estimation theory, mesoscale atmospheric dynamics, systems engineering, and polar ice.

Research Description

As an essential tool for the study of the Earth microwave remote sensing can provide valuable information regarding the state of the oceans, polar regions, and vegetated areas. I am currently involved in interdisicplinary research and development of a variety of advanced microwave remote sensing instruments, techniques, and applications, including the development of mesoscale models of oceanic winds for use in model-based wind retrieval (estimation) algorithms from scatterometer data, resolution enhancement algorithms, irregular sampling theory, cryosphere studies, innovative SAR and scatterometer systems, and satellite systems engineering.

Selected specific research topics include:

  • Spaceborne wind scatterometry and radiometry
  • Scatterometer model functions and wind retrieval
  • Rain modeling and measurement
  • Remote sensing of polar ice
  • Remote sensing of tropical and subtropical vegetaion
  • Airborne and satellite Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
  • Interferometric SAR
  • Ground-based radar remote sensing
  • Resolution enhancement and reconstruction algorithms
  • Irregular sampling and reconstruction theory
  • Cubesats and satellite systems engineering
  • Radiometry
  • Compressive sensing
