School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology


I am a PhD researcher at the school of Electrical and Electronics Engineering in the University of Adelaide since September, 2018. My research involves investigating the effects of motion error in airborne synthetic aperture radar (SAR) platform to image formation and developing novel algorithms for airborne SAR signal processing. I aim to utilize the formed SAR images in soil moisture retrieval and to understand how the image quality impacts the retrieval process.

Apart from research, I like reading non-fictions and adventures, knowing the history and traditions of different cultures and travelling across the world.
