Associate Professor / Advisor BS in GIS + CS

Dr. Liang is a geospatial scientist. The broad goal of her research is to develop novel data, scientific theory, and models to study how the feedbacks among physical environmental, biosphere, and anthroposphere are manifested in land surface change, and how these interactions can be assessed at various scales using rigorous interdisciplinary approaches.

Dr. Liang runs a "Monitoring-Mapping-Modeling" (3M) lab, with the focus on using modern opportunities to acquire frequent and accurate spatial data and create more comprehensive and informative analyses by combining the data from different instruments (ground-based, airborne, and satellite measurement) with complementary attributes.

Dr. Liang is currently teaching "Introductory GIS" and will offer "Advanced GIS" and "Digital Image Processing" in Spring 2019.
