Welcome to the home of UT radar interferometry group, a member of UT Center for Space Research (CSR). Our work is interdisciplinary by nature, and our students have opportunities to work with UT faculty members across the Cockrell School of Engineering and the Jackson School of Geosciences.

As the group lead, Ann Chen is a geophysicist and a radar scientist with more than 15 years of experience in Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) algorithm design. In 2017, she joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at The University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor. Since 2018, she has also served as a faculty member (by courtesy) in the Department of Geological Sciences at UT Austin. Her group focuses on the development of new satellites, and especially InSAR techniques, for studying natural and induced seismicity, groundwater resources, natural disasters, and permafrost hydrology and carbon storage.
