Currently leading the remote sensing component of the North Saskatchewan Region Lakes Riparian Assessment for Alberta Environment and Parks; using LiDAR and SPOT satellite data to create a historic and current land use / land cover layer to model riparian and watershed condition at a regional level.
Quantified vegetation stress from the leaf to landscape scale using lab/field observations, radiative transfer modelling, and UAV hyperspectral imaging system. Remote Sensing and Spatial Ecosystem Modeling laboratory at Department of Geography, University of Toronto Mississauga.
Remote sensing of Canadian grasslands: using vegetation biochemistry to monitor grassland health; Remote Sensing and Spatial Ecosystem Modeling laboratory at Department of Geography, University of Toronto Mississauga.
Investigated wetland properties (e.g., vegetation growing condition and its spatio-temporal variations) using medium- and high-spatial resolution satellite imagery; State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research, East China Normal University.
