Hi. I'm a postdoctoral scholar studying planetary geology in the Planetary Sciences Group at UCF.
I'm interested in diverse topics within planetary science, particularly surface mineralogy, comparative planetology and in-situ resource utilization (ISRU).
Currently working on:
High fidelity Mars and asteroid regolith simulants
In-situ resource utilization
Martian crustal alteration during magma ocean cooling
The following are some MATLAB scripts I've written to process image cubes. Feel free to use them, with no attribution or permission needed.
contrastMap: calculates the spectral contrast (i.e., average "amplitude") in an image cube.
similarityMap: creates a map of how similar each pixel is to an input spectrum, e.g., from a spectral library.
bDepthMap: calculates band depths in an image cube.
interestingnessMap: creates a map of how unique each pixel is compared to the image average.
circleAvg: calculates the average spectrum from a circular region in an image cube.
