Research interests:

My current research interests lie in the fields of fluvial geomorphology, remote sensing image classification. I am particularly interested in investigating how statistical methods, which are widly used in image classification work nowadays, can efficiently help to classify the riverscapes remote sensing image at a regional scale. My current research focuses on the channel patterns change in a tropical region. I am now working to solve the problems of geomorphological units defination in tropical cathchments, which can be very different from that in temperate regions. Some new statistical tools are expected to be applied to my research framework in the future.
