Mr. Peng Fu, fupenghzau@gmail.com

Master's student at Indiana State University

Peng Fu received his B.S. degree in
Geographical Information System from Huazhong Agricultural University, Wuhan, China, and started his Master's program in Geography at Indiana State University since fall 2012. He won the Meritorious Award in American Mathematical Contest in Modeling 2011. He has a strong education background in imaging and geoinformatics, especially in remote sensing image analysis, data mining, mathematical modeling, GIS, and computer programming. His current research focuses on the urban environmental change, climate change, as well as spatial and temporal modeling.

 

Ms. Yitong Jiang, yjiang3@sycamores.indstate.edu

PhD Student at Indiana State University

Yitong started her doctoral study at ISU since 2011, and is expected to graduate in spring 2015. Dr. Qihao Weng is her adviser. Her current research includes thermal sharpening, interpreting the relationship between land surface temperature, vegetation cover, and soil moisture, as well as assessing the impact of urbanization on surface microclimate. She also serves as a teaching assistant in ENVI110 lab. She worked as a research assistant for Dr. Kevin Czajkowski and received her Master’s degree in Geography and a GIS certificate from the University of Toledo in 2010. The title of her thesis is Identification of sewage sludge injection application on harvested agricultural fields using Landsat TM data. She majored in Land Resources Management, and graduated from China Agricultural University in 2007.

 

Mr. Zheng Sun

Master's Student at Indiana State University

Zheng received his bachelor of science degree in Geography from Harbin University, China. His research interest is to quantify and analyze urbanization using remote sensing and geospatial technologies.

 

 

Ms. Xin Wang, xwang15@sycamores.indstate.edu

Xin started her Master's program in Geography at Indiana State University since fall 2013. Her main research interests are applications of Remote Sensing and GIS on environmental change in urban areas.

 

 

 

Mr. Yanhua Xie, yxie1@sycamores.indstate.edu

PhD Student at Indiana State University

Yanhua Xie received his Bachelor’s from Southwest University, China, majored in Geographical Information System. After that, he started Master’s Education in the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, Chinese Academy of Sciences, focusing on the simulation of remotely sensed images (Visible and Infrared). He came to Indiana State University to receive his Ph.D Education in September, 2013 (supervised by Prof. Qihao Weng). His research interest mainly focuses on estimating housing, using spectral characteristics to estimate residential construction (with LiDAR and/or high resolution optical imagery, such as IKONOS) and population (with night-time imagery).

 

Mr. Yuanfan Zheng, yuanfanzheng@gmail.com

PhD Student at Indiana State University

Yuanfan obtained his B.S. degree
from the Department of Geosciences, Fujian Normal University, Fuzhou, China in 2008, and M.A. degree in Geography from Department of Geosciences and Environment, California State University in 2011. He started his PhD program at the Department of Earth and Environmental System, Indiana State University in 2012. His main research interests are applications of Remote Sensing and GIS in urban feature extraction and urban land use classification, as well as the LIDAR technology.
