"My passion is to better understand and mitigate the impacts of nature-human interactions on the environment.”
My research particularly focuses on mapping, modeling and monitoring the physical environment using advanced remote sensing and geospatial tools and techniques. While the target may vary from the built environment to natural settings, the ultimate goal of my research is to continue working towards a flexible and holistic approach to the use of geospatial tools for large-area resource management.
I have published in the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, JGR Biogeosciences, Remote Sensing, IEEE Transition of Remote Sensing Letters, and other high impact journals. Besides publishing peer-reviewed articles, I have presented my works to various audiences including researchers, professionals and the public.
I am also fortunate to obtain a wide range of teaching experience in Remote Sensing and GIS. In addition to developing and teaching undergraduate courses, I have developed and instructed workshops of different lengths and on various topics including 'collection and processing of UAV data for earth observation', 'working with LiDAR point cloud', and 'geospatial object-based image analysis'. Keep an eye on my announcement page for the upcoming workshops.
In my free time, I enjoy playing with my little son and traveling to explore the nature.
