The focus of my thesis will be digital processing of remotely sensed images. I have already had the opportunity to explore some related work in a class project. This project focused on mapping vegetation along a region of the south Texas coast by using Landsat Thematic Mapper images. This work has been accepted for presentation (and publication) at an IEEE image processing symposium.

My interest in remote sensing and other space related work began with my professional experience at TRW, Inc. I hope to apply the knowledge I am gaining in pursuit of my M.S. degree to expand the collaborative efforts between government, industry, and the academic community. Additionally, I hope to continue my graduate studies and pursue a Ph.D. degree in the future.

I believe that space exploration and utilization is an exciting area of academic study and engineering application. I hope to continually expand my involvement in the space community.
