Joseph is a 4th year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science and Physics. Joseph has experience working in R&D labs in industry, developing machine learning models for image recognition and distributed representations of large datasets, as well as a background in large scale software projects.
Joseph will be working with Professor Kimberly Strong in remote sounding measurements with the Bomem DA8 FTIR spectrometer in the University of Toronto Atmospheric Observatory, with the goal of retriving concentrations of trace atmospheric gasses. He will also contribute to statistical comparison of observatory data against data products from the Japanese Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT-2, Launched Oct 2018), and the European Space Agency's TROPO-spheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI, Launched Oct 2017). He will also apply his experience in the software world to the analysis of atmospheric data - particularly in the generative modeling of time series utilizing recurrent neural networks and hidden markov models.
