The Remote Sensing for Space Sciences group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University conducts research that is focused on two branches of the field of remote sensing:
- Space Domain Awareness
- Characterization and surveillance of satellites in near-Earth orbit
- Image restoration/reconstruction
- Ultra-high-resolution imaging through strong turbulence
Typically the techniques and instrumentation we develop in one branch have application in the other.
Our group is also a member of GSU’s Imaging Hub which is a part of GSU’s Imaging for Global Solutions Intiative.. The Imaging Hub is a consortium of faculty, postdocs and students from the Departments of Physics and Astronomy, Chemistry, Mathematics and Statistics, Psychology, Computer Science and Biology who involved in cutting-edge Imaging research.
Students working with our group have the opportunity to participate in a cross-disciplinary team with strong ties to researchers inside and outside of the academic world, both here in the USA and internationally. In addition, students working with our group have the opportunity to participate in a dual Ph.D. program with the University of Rome, Italy (Ph.D. in Astronomy from Georgia State University and a Ph.D. in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Science from the University of Rome).
