Wang, Jianmin

Ph.D. Geospatial Science & Engineering

Jianmin Wang is a PhD student at GSCE started in Fall 2015. He is working with Dr. Xiaoyang Zhang. He currently focuses on the wildfire impacts on satellite derived land surface phenology. His research interests are exploring the mechanisms of environmental conditions regulating the vegetation composition and growth with the biophysical parameters of vegetation retrieved by remote sensing. Commonly used methodologies include land surface phenology (LSP) detection, data fusion, spectral mixture analysis (SMA), radiative transfer modelling, etc. Before coming to GSCE, Jianmin Wang earned his BS (major in Physics) in 2011 and ME (major in GIS) in 2014 at Beijing Normal University, Beijing, China.
