- Senior Scientist
Dr. Rodriguez-Morales contributes to the design, development, installation, and calibration of numerous radar instruments, which have been deployed onboard multiple surface-based as well as manned and unmanned airborne platforms. He has led or co-led multiple radar surveys of ice and snow in the Arctic and the Antarctic. Before joining CReSIS, Dr. Rodriguez-Morales developed devices, circuits, and systems for passive remote sensing at microwave, millimeter-wave, and sub-millimeter wave frequencies.
