Research Interests

My research focuses on the quantitative inversion of land surface parameters, including Freeze/Thaw state,soil moisture and snow water equivalent, using remote sensing techniques. An accurate mapping of these parameters at regional and global scales will help to gain deeper insights into the Earth's water, carbon and energy cycles.
