I am now a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Zong-liang Yang's Land Environment and Atmospheric Dynamics Group at UT-Austin.
I get my PhD degree from Institute of Tibetan plateau Research, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Previous work was mainly focused on "Improving soil moisture estimate based on microwave data assimilation and a Tibetan Plateau soil moisture/temperature monitoring network". The in-situ data collected at the new established network is now included in ISMN and available online.
Currently I am working on the multi-sensor-based land data assimilation system using the CLM-DART framework. Various satellite-based observational data, including those from AMSR-E, GRACE, SMAP, and MODIS are expected to contribute to the regional/global soil moisture estimate.
