Qiang Pu.


BS: Geomatics Engineering, 2014, Central South University, China

MS: Cartography and Geographical Information Engineering, 2017, Central South University, China;

Research Interests:

My research interests mainly lie within GIScience and Environmental modeling using GIS, RS, machine learning, and geostatistic methods. I am currently working on spatial-temporal modeling of PM2.5 concentrations using satellite-derived aerosol optical depth.

Recent Courses Taught: 

GEO 483: Remote Sensing (Lab Section)

GEO 481: Introduction to Geographical Information System (Lab Section)

GEO 479: GIS for Environmental Modeling (Lab Section)
