Henrique Momm, Ph.D.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In Spring of 2008, I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at The University of Mississippi, in Oxford, Mississippi. In my dissertation, "Evolutionary Computation for Information Extraction from Remotely Sensed Imagery", I researched the use of advanced machine learning algorithms to extract information from high-resolution imagery for infrastructure damage assessment.

Currently, my main research interests are in multi-disciplinary applications of GIScience, remote sensing, watershed physical processes and modeling, machine learning algorithms, and spatial analysis. I have also great interest on the integration of computational sciences with the geosciences to support research on improving our understanding of Earth functions.

I am also the director of the Geospatial Research Center (GRC), an interdisciplinary research and educational initiative designed to increase the use and awareness of GIS, Spatial Analysis, and Remote Sensing.
