Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for stopping by my website.

My name is Kai, and I am an Oceanographer at the United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Washington D.C.

I am interested in:
– using transiting surface ships as sources of opportunity for the purpose of array and environmental parameter characterization
– signal and array processing in the presence of environmental noise
– development of compressive sensing techniques for source localization and parameter estimation (including sparse Bayesian learning and adaptive processing)
– passive localization of low-level acoustic sources

In my free time, I enjoy to backpack and to sail.

Quote of the moment (Press F5 to refresh):

If you want to really hurt your parents, and you don’t have the nerve to be gay, the least you can do is go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.
