I am a Research Scientist in the Department of Geography at Indiana University. I am a modeler and remote sensing expert with both hydrogeology and terrestrial carbon cycle background. I love coding and do have real passion for both research and teaching. I am interested to understand the response of the carbon cycle and terrestrial ecosystems to climate and environmental changes. I am using data assimilation methods to constrain global carbon cycle sink projections and modeled carbon-climate feedbacks. Previously I developed numerical tools based on Training Image for stochastic subsurface modeling. I also presented a quantitative analysis of the morphology and spatial distribution of cave ceiling features based on LiDAR data to identify subsurface flow processes and quantify groundwater recharge.

On October 6-8th, 2020: I attended the 2020 Ameriflux Annual Meeting and presented our work on semi-arid ecosystem model optimization at the meeting. I really like the exciting and user-friendly platform "Gather" used in the meeting which offered plenty of opportunity for interactions with academics, scientists and Ameriflux site PIs.
