What insights lie hidden in your sensor data?
WHO WE ARE
We are a cross-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers who work at the intersection of the physical sciences, sensing, and information processing.
Our team is highly skilled at characterizing and monitoring subsurface environments and processes, performing numerical modeling, digital signal processing, and machine learning in the presence of noise and uncertainty.
We apply these competencies to develop innovative applications of sensing and analysis to problems of societal importance with particular emphasis on illuminating hidden parameters affecting complex and dynamic systems.
WHAT WE DO
We find insights that conventional approaches miss.
We combine foundational respect for first principles with quantitative understanding of measurement error and skill in advanced computational methods, to extract maximum actionable information from sensor signals.
From monitoring the fine scale movement of water through the earth to revealing hidden tunnels that threaten security, we develop technologies that power discovery.
