I received my Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering (2022) and my M.S. in Data Science (2021) at the University of Virginia with a focus on remote sensing of environment and machine learning. I have received a grant from the Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (2019) (link) and the 2020 AGU Horton Research Grant (link), both thanks to my research on diurnal oil soisture using satellite observations and data assimilation.
