My research interests lie in the fileds of hydrology and remote sensing. I am particularly interested in earth observations (EO) of key variables of the water cycle. How to exploit EO data to advance our knowledge of the hydrological processes, and to accurately monitor flood and drought, etc. have always driven me forward. During the past five years, I have mainly worked on the research about lake level variations, river level retrieval, and simulating river hydrodynamics using these data sets.
I completed my PhD in September 2018 in the Department of Environmental Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). My PhD thesis was titled Exploiting CryoSat-2 Altimetry for Surface Water Monitoring and Modelling. My supervisors were Professor Peter Bauer-Gottwein and Professor Ole B. Andersen. I was a postdoctoral researcher at DTU and worked on two projects, i.e. EOForChina and ChinaWaterSense until the end of February 2021.
I am now an assistant professor at SUSTech since March 2021. Exploring the potentials offered by the big EO data for hydrological research is one of my focuses. I very much welcome students/postdocs to join my group and all kinds of collaborations. Please feel free to contact me.
