Full Resume

Hello, I am a first year PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Delaware.


I am currently a Research Assistant at VIMS Lab at the University of Delaware under the supervision of Dr Chandra Kambhamettu.

My research is focused on the development of algorithms that generate fine-scale motion analysis of sea ice from remote sensing data using a traditional Computer Vision approach.

My research interests include Computer Vision, Deep Learning, sea ice and remote sensing.


Oct 2020 - present: SIDEx (Sea Ice Dynamic Experiment). Field support and development of algorithms for fine-scale drift and deformation characterization.

Dec 2020 - present: MOSAiC (Multidisciplinary Drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate). Developing sea ice motion analysis algorithms and methods for fracture and lead formation prediction using Sentinel-1 data.

Oct 2019 - Nov 2019: SCALE (Southern Ocean Seasonal Experiment). Six week expedition to Antartica aboard the S.A. Agulhas II as part of the Sea Ice Team.


Sep 2020 - present: PhD in Computer Science, University of Delaware

Dec 2018 - Jan 2019: React Front End Web Development Course, Zaio [Online]

Feb 2015 - Nov 2019: Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cape Town, _Award for best final honors project, title: “Stereo system design for ship-based acquisition in Antarctica”

Feb 2012 - Nov 2014: Bachelor of Architectural Studies, University of Cape Town
