Full Bio

I am a Researcher at the University of Maryland Department of Geographical Sciences and a Machine Learning Engineer at NASA Harvest. I work closely with Dr. Catherine Nakalembe and Dr. Hannah Kerner on cropland mapping, scalable data collection, and ML advances for remote sensing data. I completed my master's degree in Computer Science at the University of Maryland. My thesis was titled "Usable Machine Learning for Remote Sensing Data". Before that, I worked at a fintech start-up developing machine learning and data science solutions for automating trade finance document processing. I completed a BEng in Software Engineering at the University of Western Ontario.
