I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems at the University of Western Sydney. Prior to completing my PhD program I was a professional software engineer with a background in mathematics. I also have industrial experience in optical design, physical optics, opto-mechanics, instrumentation, and instrumentation control.
I work on polarization based remote sensing and design, novel imaging systems, opto-mechanical systems, and optical systems for space situational awareness. I primarily analyze polarization sensing instruments using image science, linear systems theory, estimation theory and these imaging operators in the presence of noise. I also use defined classification/detection tasks to define classes of compressive polarimetric instruments which are best suited to that specific task. This requires applications of machine learning and feature selection.
I am generally interested in statistical operators applied to classical electromagnetics, machine learning (specifically manifold learning), using learned manifolds to drive insight into complicated physical problems, and general imaging/optics problems.
