Researcher biography

Zunyi is a postdoctoral research fellow and his research uses novel applications of remote sensing, spatial modelling and time-series analysis to explore ecohydrological interactions and map environmental changes for improved management. His PhD work focused on integrating GRACE observations with various other satellite data to study hydrological dynamics, ecological functions and their interactions under hydroclimatic extremes. His current Postdoc project is developing a novel approach coupling remote sensing big data techniques (e.g. GEE) with socio-economic analysis and decision making to identify global ‘Uncontested lands’ for multiple SDGs of renewable energy, poverty, food and conservation.
