Welcome to the Lab News Page!

I'll post stuff on occasion about the lab members here.

Lab Meetings are scheduled here. Lab guidelines.


Jenny Palomino wins fellowship

Jenny Palomino has been awarded the Carl Hart Family Foundation Fellowship. Caryl Hart received her PhD working with Sally Fairfax in 2009. She is the head of Sonoma County Parks, and has been very active, and passionate, about California parks. Jenny is working with Alice Kelly looking at land use/land cover change in National Parks.

Congratulations to Jenny!


New visitor: Pengfeng Xiao

Pengfeng XiaoDr. Pengfeng Xiao will join us this April for one year to work on remote sensing projects. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Geographic Information Science, Nanjing University, China. He received the Ph.D. degree in Cartography and Geographical Information System from Nanjing University in 2007. His research interests include remote sensing image segmentation and object-oriented analysis, land use and land cover change, and remote sensing of snow cover. He is the author of more than 10 articles published in international journals, and the recipient of the CPGIS Best Paper Award in 2007 and the ISPRS Prize for Best Paper by Young Author in 2008.


New Academic Coordinator for IGIS - Laurie Koteen

Laurie KoteenWelcome to Laurie Koteen, new Academic Coordinator for the Informatics and GIS statewide program (IGIS) as the Ecological Science Academic Coordinator for the Earth Observation Network (EON).  Laurie has broad experience in the study of climate- ecosystem interactions and plant ecology through completion of a Ph.D. and postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley.  For her doctoral work, Laurie studied the impact of the shift in species composition on carbon cycling and storage, and on the surface energy balance in California grasslands.  As a postdoctoral researcher in UC Berkeley’s biometeorology lab, Laurie studied fine root distribution in a California oak savanna.  Subsequently, she collaborated on a project measuring land-atmosphere exchanges of CO2 and methane across land use types in California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Laurie will be housed in Mulford Hall.


New Visitor: Huang Rui

Huang RuiDr. Huang Rui will be visiting us this fall to work on remote sensing projects.  She is currently in the Communication & Information Engineering Department at Shanghai University. 

Her work mainly focuses on:

  • multi-/hyper-spectral data analysis: classification and recognition of interesting objects, band extraction, band selection;
  • data mining and machine learning: high-dimensional data preprocessing, classification, feature extraction, feature selection; and
  • neural networks, evolution computing and image processing.

She will be here begining in November.
