Summary of Expertise: Listed with other top experts in: 
Expert has extensive expertise in the area of cluster analysis. He was employed for a number of years at NASA/JSC, where he utilized cluster analysis techniques to group differing vegetation types on the earth's surface. This was done in order to estimate crop acreage utilizing remotely-sensed satellite-based data. His Master's thesis was concerned with pattern recognition and required an in-depth knowledge of cluster analysis.
