Lin Yan is a post-doc fellow with Dr. David Roy working on the project Changing Field Sizes of the Conterminous United States, a Decennial Landsat Assessment.
Lin Yan received his Ph. D. in Geodetic Science from The Ohio State University (OSU), and he received his B.S in Surveying Engineering and M.S. in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensnig from Tongji University in China. His Ph.D. research focus on the spectral-spatial classification and nonlinear dimensionality-reduction of hyperspectral remote sensing images, and he had also served as software engineer in Mapping and GIS Lab at OSU to support NASA's Mars Exploration Rover (MER) and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) missions.
