Rolando Raqueño

Rolando Raqueño is currently a Research Scientist with the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Laboratory at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and also serves as a Geospatial Data Scientist for the Rochester Data Science Consortium. In this role, Raqueño researches and develops methods to automate the merging of multiple data sources, specifically geospatial imagery and Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data.

Raqueño’s current line of research focuses on improving DIRSIG usability, scenario generation tools for DIRSIG, developing best-practices for managing these scenarios and establishing the necessary distributed computation workflow to simulate these scenarios.

Prior to joining the Consortium, Raqueño worked as a research assistant, and then as an associate scientist/engineer, with the Digital Imaging and Remote Sensing Laboratory at RIT. From 1991 to 1994 Raqueño worked as a development engineer with the Federal Systems Division of Eastman Kodak.

Raqueño earned his Ph.D. in Environmental Resource Engineering from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science & Forestry in 2004. He earned his Master of Science in Computer Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 1990.
