I’m interested in the interdisciplinary research of remote sensing, terrestrial ecosystem ecology and climate change. I’m focusing on the observation of shifting vegetation phenology using remote sensing and ground-based cameras, the internal and external drivers of vegetation phenology, and the changes in carbon cycle due to the shifting vegetation phenology.
