My research aims to understand the interactions among human, climate and land systems based on remote sensing and geospatial modelling. To be specific, my research interests include land use/cover change, satellite remote sensing of vegetation, climate change and terrestrial vegetation dynamics. Now I am working on the NSF-funded project: The role of taxonomic, functional, genetic, and landscape diversity in food web responses to a changing environment. In this project, I will use remote sensing to characterize cropping patterns, landscape diversity, land surface temperature and other potential variables that give the spatial context of food-web dynamics and evolutionary changes of aphid in the agricultural ecosystems.
I like hiking in wild places to breathe fresh air. When I am at home I enjoy cooking. Soccer is my favorite sport. In my spare time, I enjoy watching football games.
