Research

My research focuses on vegetation in arid/semi-arid region. I use remote sensing and GIS technique to study the dynamics of non-photosynthesized (NPV) and photosynthesized vegetation (PV). My current project relates to valley fever incidences and the dynamics of dust, taking NPV, PV, and soil cover as the proxy of dust.
