Kernel Smoothing for Sea Ice DynamicDuring my time at Datrmouth , I have been working on a software to construct smooth representation of sea ice dynamic. Potential applications include using the smooth data to learn governing differential equations in large scale. We also establish a theoretical framework to prove \( L^p \) convergence theorems for such family of smooth approximations (Read more). 
Orthogonal Polynomials on \( S^1 \) and Verblunsky CorrespondenceAbove animation visualizes the 5th orthogonal polynomial on the circle with respect to the background measure \( d\mu = (1cos \theta) \frac{d\theta}{2\pi} \). This polynomial can be seen as a section of a fiber bundle on \( S^1 \) with the fiber being the set of complex numbers. In my current project, we study a new family of measures \( d\mu = (1cos \theta)^a \frac{d\theta}{2\pi} \) establishing the corresponding Verblunsky sequence and orthogonal polynomials. 
Radars and Autonomous Cars at Lunewave:In the summer of 2019, I was involved in a project at lunewave working on Radars and Autonomous Cars. During this period, I worked on algorithms to track and classify objects. I implemented a C++ GUI software for the analysis and visualization of the Radar data. Here is a video demonstration of the software where you can match the classified cars in the point cloud data with the camera video.
