• Remote sensing phenology and modeling

  • Phenological observations using digital cameras

  • Vegetation spectroscopy

I am currently a PhD candidate in Brown University – Marine Biological Laboratory Joint Program. I am interested in terrestrial ecosystem ecology and climate change. Specifically, I am focusing on the impact of climate change on plant phenology (budburst, greenup and senescence).I use both remote sensing and digital camera to monitor the “leaf coloring”. I use spectroscopy to study the seasonal patterns of plant biochemical, biophysical properties and internal structure. In addition, I am testing a new system to estimate solar-induced fluorescence from in-vivo┬ávegetation canopies.

During my spare time, I’d like to do some reading, playing soccer and biking.

I post my weekly readings of journal articles in here. Please feel free to comment. If you are interested in my publications, please follow me on researchgate (link in contact page).
