Kia Ora πŸ‘‹

I am a Geospatial Data Scientist from Malaysia πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ working remotely and thinking about where to go next! My background is in Geography, with a particular interest in Earth Observation using satellites πŸ›°οΈ, having done cool research on Antarctic ice dynamics during my PhD in Aotearoa/New Zealand πŸ₯. 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:
