“Integrating Earth Observation into Spatial Science Education
to Support Sustainable Development in Environment and Society”
Join the Spatial Sciences Institute for a talk presented by Yi Qi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Meet in the Spatial Sciences Institute conference room AHF B57J or participate by Zoom: https://usc.zoom.us/j/92604149790.
Earth observation through remote sensing sciences provides essential data to track planetary changes and support scientific discovery and policy making. Integrating earth observation into spatial science becomes critical to bridge the gap between education and workforce. Dr. Qi will discuss multiple funded projects to highlight the research advances of earth observation in agriculture, forest management and urban development.
He will also discuss the innovative approaches to teach remote sensing and spatial data sciences.
Dr. Qi is an assistant professor in the School of Natural Resources at University of Nebraska-Lincoln. His research group focuses on satellite and airborne remote sensing, computational models, field work and AI to address how climate and human practices affect crop productivity and ecosystem functioning.
He is a faculty fellow in the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute and faculty fellow in the Center for Advanced Land Management Information Technologies. He has published over thirty papers and led over ten grants in the total amount of two million dollars.
He received his Ph.D. in Geography at University of Utah and was a post-doc at University of California, Davis. Prior to joining UNL, he was a senior spatial scientist at Brown University.
