-- Leading a team of mid-career and junior engineers to perform cutting-edge algorithms development.

-- Overseeing the design, implementation, and performance assessment of various algorithms using various sets of real or simulated satellite imagery provided by the government.

-- Developing performance assessment reports of findings and effectively communicating these findings through written reports and presentations.
