I am a geographer and programmer focusing on the study of human-environment interactions by using remote sensing imageries. I am a bridge-builder for closing the gap between the operational uses of scientific remote sensing and GIS techniques and land management practices at the regional scale. The general theme of my work is to gain a quantitative understanding of the relationships between humans, landscape patterns and ecological processes. Current projects include mapping forest management unit, road ecology and the applications of Volunteered Geographic Information at the macrosystems scale.
