Researcher biography

From 2017 to 2021, Zunyi served as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Biodiversity and Conservation Science and the School of Environment at The University of Queensland. His PhD research focused on large-scale ecohydrological studies, utilising GRACE and hydrological models. His postdoc at UQ marked a pivotal shift towards high-resolution conservation studies, leveraging the Google Earth Engine's capabilities. Building upon this foundation, he has since progressed to harnessing satellite big data for quantifying the effectiveness of conservation management and policies. Currently, he holds the position of Professor at Henan University in China and is an Honorary Research Fellow at CBCS and the School of Environment at UQ. Leading a dedicated research team, Zunyi is at the forefront of integrating remote sensing big data technologies into conservation efforts and sustainable development initiatives.
