4th annual RGi Scholarship awarded to Adrian Seemangal!

Reinventing Geospatial®, Inc. (RGi®) is pleased to announce that Adrian Seemangal has been selected as the recipient of our 4th annual $10,000 RGi Scholarship for Geospatial and Engineering, given in partnership with The United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF).

Adrian is a junior at The University of Maryland (UMD), College Park, where he is majoring in Geographical Sciences and minoring in Russian Studies.

He first became interested in geospatial sciences through remote sensing, as he was fascinated by the concept of using false-color imagery to reveal information that our eyes cannot see. Upon joining UMD’s geography program, other aspects of geospatial sciences, such as GIS and spatial data science, also captivated him. More recently as an Analytic Methodologist Intern for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), he applied expertise in scientific analysis techniques to inform analysts on various quantitative methods they can use to solve GEOINT issues.

“Adrian is the perfect student to receive our RGi Scholarship, said RGi CEO, Stephen Gillotte. “He’s an advanced thinker who sees a challenge and is excited to create solutions. He’s a leader, a problem-solver, and he’s in it for the greater good. He’s also a martial arts instructor…Adrian does it all! I’m thrilled to have him in our RGi family.”

Adrian’s personal research interests include drone LIDAR mapping, and using artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) for remote sensing. Outside of his educational and professional work, Adrian does undergraduate research in spatial ecology for UMD’s Bill Fagan Lab, and serves as the Vice President of Flower STEM, a club dedicated to showcasing creativity within STEM fields.

As CTO, Chitra will oversee RGi’s data science, AI/ML, and cyber situational awareness & understanding vision, strategy, and direction while working with the community to support our contracted and internal research and development (R&D) efforts. She will be responsible for driving our technology forward, inspiring and growing RGi’s engineering team, and delivering innovative technical solutions that provide an immediate impact to our Defense and Intelligence customers.

“Given Chitra’s proven track record within AI/ML, Mission Applications, and Data Science, she will enhance RGi’s position as an innovative, technology-first firm, and energize our entire company around our technical abilities and offerings,” said Stephen Gillotte, RGi CEO.

Chitra brings a wealth of experience by previously serving in various executive-level technology capacities at SAIC, Raytheon (formerly Blackbird Technologies), Exelis, and In-Q-Tel, where she developed and maintained the roadmap and strategy for analysis and analytic platform capabilities, as well as the AI strategy and path forward, including Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Machine Learning, and Deep Learning, as well as Modeling and Simulation capabilities and High Performance Computing analytics. Chitra holds an MBA from The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, a B.S. in Imaging Science from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and is a recent recipient of the AI Executive of the Year award from WashingtonExec.

Chitra’s technical expertise won’t be outshined by her creative talents, as she is also a founder of The Craft of Brewing, a small craft brewery with brew-on-premise capabilities in Ashburn, VA. When she’s not making an impact for RGi’s customers, she’ll likely be at the brewery grabbing a beer and discussing grains, hops, or the latest in computer vision algorithms.

“What excites me the most about RGi is the company’s passion, culture and intellectual curiosity to solve our customers’ toughest problems,” said Chitra. “I’m fortunate to be able to lead and grow with this talented team.”
