Kia Ora 👋
I am a Geospatial Data Scientist from Malaysia 🇲🇾 working remotely and thinking about where to go next! My background is in Geography, with a particular interest in Earth Observation using satellites 🛰️, having done cool research on Antarctic ice dynamics during my PhD in Aotearoa/New Zealand 🥝. Specifically, I work on applying Deep Learning methods to Remote Sensing datasets, keeping busy on the leading edge of data-driven research in the Earth Sciences.
These are some of the hats I wear:
- ☁️ Cloud Engineer in the GeoAI team at Development Seed
- 🌏 Core Developer of PyGMT: A Pythonic Interface to the Generic Mapping Tools
- ☯️ Starting a new Python package called zen3geo for building Earth Observation and geospatial data pipelines
- 🔭 Making open source contributions to the Pytorch ecosystem and Pangeo community, all in the PyData world!
Want to connect?
- 💻 I'm open to new opportunities with a geospatial focus, including remote/part-time/project-based work arrangements, so reach out!
- 📫 Track me on Mastodon as @weiji14, or find some other links on my website
- 👀 Be sure to check out my cool Computer Vision projects:
- DeepBedMap - Super Resolution Generative Adversarial Network to resolve the bed topography of Antarctica
- DeepIceDrain - Finding subglacial lakes using unsupervised DBSCAN clustering
- DeepSlide - Self-supervised learning on SAR data for change detection, for the FDL2022 NASA Earth Science challenge
- Crevasse detection and navigation - Done using Image Segmentation + Reinforcement Learning
- S2S2Net - Sentinel-2 Super-Resolution Segmentation Network using a Vision Transformer model (SegFormer)
⚡ Fun fact: I was brought up trilingual, and am fluent in English, 中文 & Bahasa Melayu.
