research overview

  • My basic research deals with estimation of static and time-variable gravity field of the Earth using satellite and ground-based observations. My applied research is about monitoring of water resources (such as groundwater and snow) using remote sensing observations from GRACE/GRACE-FO satellites as well as GNSS and InSAR deformation combined with physics-based and hydrological models. In particular, I am interested in quantifying and understanding the impact of extreme climate events such as droughts and floods on freshwater resources like groundwater.

courses taught

  • ASEN 1320 - Aerospace Computing and Engineering Applications
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Uses problems and tools from Engineering. Teaches techniques for writing computer programs in higher level programming languages to solve problems of interest in Engineering and other domains. Appropriate for students with little or no prior experience in programming.
  • ASEN 4018 - Senior Projects 1: Design Synthesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2023
    Focuses on the synthesis of technical knowledge, project management, design process, leadership, and communications within a team environment. Students progress through the design process beginning with requirements development, then preliminary design and culminating with critical design. Offered fall only.
  • ASEN 4028 - Senior Projects 2: Design Practicum
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2024
    Focuses on the fabrication, integration, verification and validation of designs produced in ASEN 4018. Students work within the same teams from ASEN 4018. Offered spring only.
