My research interests center around the application of remote sensing and geospatial big data, with a focus on integration and dissemination, to address climate change-induced challenges, and work toward energy transition and natural-based mitigation pathways. My current research work includes applying machine learning in climate change action that supports new energy transportation and autonomous driving planning.
