Geolabe

I recently began my internship at Geolabe, working on a NASA research project. My role focuses on developing advanced Deep Learning models to detect Methane Emissions and Groundwater Depletion using satellite data. The chance to work with cutting-edge technologies like Vision-Transformers and U-Net has provided an incredible learning experience.
