Track Chair 2: Prof. Yuri Rzhanov, University of New Hampshire, United States
Personal Website:

Dr. Rzhanov'
s research interests are in the signal and image processing and analysis. Specifically, underwater optical sensing, refractive effects, optimal calibration of camera arrays, 3D reconstruction of scenes, including using time-of-flight cameras, automatic monitoring and classification of aquatic habitats, estimation of species? abundance, classification of seafloor facies from acoustic backscatter, and derivation of nearshore bathymetry from satellite data. After defending PhD thesis on nonlinear self-organization phenomena in solid state materials, he worked on numerical modeling of nonlinear effects in lasers, development of interactive educational software, and 2D and 3D signal processing. Currently Dr. Rzhanov is a Research Professor at the Center of Coastal and Ocean Mapping, UNH, and is working on time-of-flight cameras underwater and extraction of bathymetry from ICESat-2 products.
