CReSIS Signal and Data Processing Group

CReSIS Signal and Data Processing Group 2018 (missing Jilu Li and Manjish Adhikari).
Group Picture
The Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) Signal and Data Processing Group focuses on research for new processing algorithms as well as designing, developing, and operating processing pipelines for radar data collected by the research center and distributing these data products to the end users.

Currently all graduate research assistant positions are filled.

My research focuses on HF to Ka-band signal/data processing and radar system engineering for remote sensing of terrestrial snow and ice (non-atmospheric). Direction of arrival estimation applied to synthetic aperture radar (SAR tomography), differential interferometric SAR (DINSAR), machine learning and image processing applied to radar imaging are my current areas of interest in this field.

From an old friend Pannirselvam Kanagaratnam:


"Mend a quarrel.
Search out a forgotten friend.
Dismiss suspicion and replace it with trust.
Share some treasure.
Give a soft answer.
Encourage youth.
Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed.
Keep a promise.
Find the time.
Forego a grudge.
Forgive an enemy.
Apologize if you were wrong.
Try to understand.
Flout envy.
Examine your demands on others.
Think first of someone else.
Appreciate, be kind, be gentle.
Laugh a little more.

Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj
