Jessica Fayne

PhD Geography student, University of California, Los Angeles


I am a geographer and physical science remote sensing researcher focusing on the changes of surface and near-surface water. My current research uses radar for satellite data product development, and I am also interested in algorithm development for natural disasters products. I program primarily in R, but I also use Matlab and python as necessary.
