Remote Sensing and Global Change

Yao Zhang

I'm a postdoctoral reaserch scholar with Dr. Trevor Keenan at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and Univeristy of California, Berkeley. I got my Ph.D. in ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Oklahoma in December, 2017. After then, I worked with Dr. Pierre Gentine at Columbia University on machine learning and carbon and water coupling. My research interest inlcudes solar induced chlorophyll fluorescence, vegetation dynamic, drought impact and global carbon cycle. I use machine learning, multiscale models and observations to solve emerging question on carbon and water cycles.

I will be joining the Peking University as an assistant professor in May, 2021.
