Larry Leigh started as a graduate student in the SDSU Image Processing Lab in 1999. He went on to become a full-time researcher in 2003, and now he is the Assistant Director of the Lab. Leigh has a number of research interests:
- Vicarious Calibration of Orbital Imaging platforms via field work and atmospheric measurement at the time of overpass
- Atmospheric Compensation of satellite based measurements to correct for the optical distortions caused by viewing the surface of the Earth from space
- Global processing of the world, using cloud computing platforms, such as Google Earth Engine, to develop new and novel global scale calibration techniques
- UAV and Satellite applications that support precision agriculture
