Satya Kalluri is the
Chief of the Cooperative Research Programs (CoRP) at the NOAA/NESDIS
Center for Satellite Applications and Research (STAR). He earned his
Ph.D. from the Department of Geographical Sciences, University of
Maryland at College Park (UMCP) in 1994. As a research scientist at
UMCP from 1994-2000, Dr. Kalluri lead several remote sensing projects
which developed consistently calibrated and processed baseline data for
global change studies including the NOAA-NASA AVHRR Land Pathfinder
dataset, and the Landsat GeoCover dataset. He also lead the
development of high performance computing algorithms for land cover
dynamics with funding from NSF at UMCP. From 2000 to 2007, Dr. Kalluri
lead several remote sensing application development projects under
NASA's EOSDIS program for federal, state and local government users.
Prior to joining STAR, he was the lead NOAA scientist for algorithms and
product generation system development in the GOES-R ground segment
project office at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center from 2007 to 2015.
Dr. Kalluri's interests include the development of systems and
applications to process and apply remote sensing data for decision
making. He published extensively on a wide range of subjects including
the development of baseline remote sensing data for global change
studies, and application of remote sensing data in a variety of
disciplines such as agriculture, land surface energy balance, human
health and atmospheric sciences.
