Biographical Sketch

Mike "Stuke" Stuecheli is an MS research assistant with VIVA; he received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering in May of 2011, and expects to finish his M.S.E.E. in May 2013. Stuke can often be found making volleyball meteors (and their respective craters, reminiscent of Michael Bay-style special effects) on the beautiful sand volleyball courts on the University's grounds.

Research Interests

Mike's research deals with remote sensing--his current interests include utilizing graph-based methods to segment and detect terrain-deformation phenomena from sparse InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar) data acquired via satellite. In addition, Mike also works with surface reconstruction and GIS (Geographic Information System) data integration.
