What is your main field of work or research interest?

polarimetric SAR, image classification, machine learning, agriculture in remote sensing

What motivated you to become part of the ISPRS Student Consortium board?

The enthusiasm and energy of the SC members initially encouraged me to become a part of ISPRS SC board. Fostering new relationships and sharing more information will truly strengthen the society. 

To the members of the ISPRS-Student Consortium:

Social interactions in both your academic or professional area will provide you more benefits than studying by yourself at your laboratory. More networking means more understanding of what’s going on in your field. It will give you more confidence to convey your opinions. SC is the great platform for this purpose. Join us and use this advantage. We need you!
