Urban Heat and Urban Transporation

We use thermal remote sensing and the urban heat budget to isolate and quantify the transportation impact on urban heat and climate change.

Crime Prediction and Spatial Statistics

We develop a novel geostatistical technique to integrate historical crime data and urban transitional zones identified from the VIIRS nightlight imagery for more accurate crime prediction.


ST-Cokriging and Image Fusion/Assimilation

We develop a spatio-temporal Cokriging (ST-Cokriging) method for assimilating multi-sensor remote sensing data that optimally determines parameters by accounting for spatio-temporal covariance. This method yields more reliable assimilation results than previous methods, effectively filling data gaps while providing quantitative uncertainty estimates.
