Research/Internships

  • Western Washington University, Advisor: Melissa Rice; Analysis and Cataloguing of Mastcam spectra over the MSL Curiosity Rover traverse (2018-2019).
  • Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory APL NASA Intern, Advisor: Frank Seelos; Processing of spectral images taken by MRO CRISM utilizing graph theory and atmospheric opacity to optimize mosaicking spatially and spectrally.
  • Western Washington University, Advisors: Melissa Rice/Frank Seelos; Comparing orbital and in situ spectroscopic imagery from Curiosity's Mastcam and MRO's CRISM instrument. Simulated Curiosity rover observations using CRISM and draped the simulation over a DEM for a near 1:1 comparison.
  • Johns Hopkins APL Planetary Science Leased Worker, Advisors: Frank Seelos/David Humm/Scott Murchie; Processing CRISM hyperspectral image cubes (MSVs) through fixing and rewriting calibration data files, creating a processing step to remediate a noise structure embedded in the images both temporally and spectrally, and tailoring one of the analysis steps specifically to the MSVs. Facilitated the release of +80,000 MSV images to the PDS.
