I came to Michigan Tech in August 2020 after I finished two years’ postdoc training in Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Before that, I spent four years in University of Florida to pursue a PhD degree in Geomatics and MS degree in Statistics simultaneously after I obtained a MS degree in remote sensing area from SUNY ESF in 2014.

My research interest focuses on utilizing computing and remote sensing techniques to solve problems related to natural resource management, ecology, natural disaster mapping, vegetation property extraction, and urban remote sensing.
