Researcher biography

Zunyi is a remote sensing researcher of terrestrial ecohydrological systems. His work focuses on hydrological dynamics, ecological functions and their interactions under the impacts of climate change, with the application of remote sensing, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and spatial statistics across various spatial and temporal scales. His current research applies remote sensing techniques for large areas – long time series data, as well as economics and social metrics, to detect uncontested lands. He is also looking at the prioritising of uncontested lands for conservation based on estimates of ecological restoration and costs.
