UAS Research Objective
UAS-based remote sensing and photogrammetric techniques for geospatial analytics. Current UAS research for agriculture is focused on: best practices for small UAS data collection and processing for geospatial fidelity; multi-sensor integration; machine learning techniques for analytics; and applications related to crop health, particularly pest management, and forage and rangeland problems.
I am an Assistant Professor in Geospatial Engineering and GISc and Director of the Measurement Analytics Lab (MANTIS). My research focuses on emergent remote sensing and geomatics techniques for measurement of natural and built system dynamics. Current research thrusts include UAS photogrammetry, LiDAR mapping systems and applications, measurement uncertainty, and machine learning applications to remotely sensed data.
