I'm a PhD Candidate at the Department of Environmental Resources Engineering, College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF), Syracuse, New York. My research interests include remote sensing applications in forestry and hydrological studies, Evapotranspiration (ET) estimation, Land use and Land cover Change, Surface energy balance, GIS-based modeling, and automated algorithms development. ET, a combined process of evaporation and transpiration, is
one of the major components of hydrological budget and land surface model. My research focuses on the estimation of remotely sensed ET using surface energy balance algorithms. I'm trying to integrate genetic algorithms and multi-sensor fusion models in the ET estimation process.I'm also automating ET models to bring it within the domain of new users. Other aspects of my research include automated tree crown delineation and object-based infested tree detection models. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss about my research or your new research idea.
