Undergraduate Research Assistant

Born and raised in Tucson Arizona, I am pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science at the University of Arizona. I was brought onto the TAPIR lab team in the summer of 2019 as a research assistant to work on scientific software and radar system development. Specifically relating to Python and C software development. Currently, I am working on improving the Multi-Sim Clutter Simulator whose purpose is to create surface clutter simulations to aid in the analysis of airborne and space-born sounding radar images. The Multi-Sim simulates surface clutter on Mars, from the SHARAD instrument on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter(MRO). The goal is to improve readability, efficiency, and run-time, to allow for better use across the scientific community.
