Impact

Dr. Chi’s research addresses the criticality of synthesizing coastal mapping, dynamic modeling of glacier changes, and geospatial image processing to monitor environment changes. More specifically, her research work focuses on implementing various applications of passive microwave remote sensing technique in Geosciences for land cover change detection. She is keen in developing remote sensing image processing products to advancing the details and frequency of natural resource monitoring.
