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 research focuses on vegetation characterization in the
Florida Everglades, coastal hazard, land cover land use dynamics, and
spatial modeling and analysis. My publications have appeared in
peer-reviewed journals such as Remote
Sensing of Environment, Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote
Sensing, Journal of
Geophysical Research, Geophysical
Research Letters, and The
Professional Geographer. 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.
I am teaching Hyperspectral
Remote Sensing, Aerial
Photo Interpretation and Photogrammetry, LiDAR Remote Sensing, and Digital Image Analysis, at FAU.
Our Department has a strong GIS&RS program.
Potential graduate students who have special research interest and
aptitude in GIS&RS can talk to me.
