Research interests

My research interests focus on soil proximal and remote sensing, digital soil mapping, soil erosion modelling, hydrological modelling and land use/land cover mapping. I am especially interested in improving the ways of digital soil mapping techniques using open-source remote sensing and sparse reference data.

Personal interests

I always take pleasure in observing nature, particularly in mountainous lands and listening to singing birds.
