EE Graduate student Yuriy Goykhman is honored to be an MIT Lincoln Laboratory Fellow for 2008-09. Goykhman’s research interests include development of new radar remote sensing instruments, techniques, and processing algorithms. He studies with Prof. Mahta Moghaddam.
Describing his research, Goykhman explains, “Since the radar measures quantities which are proportional to scattering cross sections, accurate and efficient forward scattering models are needed to relate target parameters to the radar measurements. An inverse model must then used to retrieve the target unknowns. One of my goals is to develop computationally efficient forward scattering models with large regions of validity which could be successfully and efficiently inverted. I am also working on a low frequency radar concept for remote measurement of depth of fresh bodies of water as well as for subsurface soil moisture estimation.”
