We are global change ecologists and we use various tools — remote sensing, field observations, and modeling — to understand the impact of climate change on our ecosystems. We travel to ecosystems from tropics to the arctic. We use novel remote sensing techniques to see the ecosystems in ways we couldn't. We use advanced computer science techniques to analyze geospatial products. Please contact xiyang@virginia.edu if you are interested in joining the lab! We are looking for motivated undergraduate, graduate students, and postdocs.
