Knowing Our Earth from Space

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Geosciences at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). I received my first Ph.D. in Ocean Remote Sensing from Ocean University of China (OUC) in 2007 and second Ph.D. in Geospatial Information Sciences from University of Texas at Dallas in 2010. My expertise includes quantitative analysis of LiDAR and hyperspectral data for vegetation characterization, remote sensing of ocean climate change, and spatial modeling and analysis. My publications have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing, Journal of Geophysical Research, Geophysical Research Letters, The Professional Geographer, and Remote Sensing of Environment. My research work is being funded by the Natural Science Foundation of China and U.S. Geological Survey. I was awarded 2015 John I. Davidson Presidentís Award from ASPRS; 2013 ERDAS Award for Best Scientific Paper in Remote Sensing (First Place) from ASPRS; 2012 Early Career Paper Award by the Remote Sensing Specialty Group (RSSG) of Association of American Geographers (AAG); 2010 First Place of Student Honors Paper Competition by RSSG of AAG; 2009 First Prize of National Natural Science Award by the Ministry of Education of China; and 2008 the best Doctoral Dissertation Award of OUC. I am teaching Hyperspectral Remote Sensing, Aerial Photo Interpretation and Photogrammetry, LiDAR Remote Sensing, Digital Image Analysis, and Marine Geology at FAU.

 

Our Department has strong GIS&RS program. Potential graduate students who have special research interest and aptitude in RS can talk to me. If you are more interested in GIS, please talk to Dr. Zhixiao Xie.
