Introduction I am a postdoc research fellow at University of Massachusetts, Amherst. My research is focused on the use of multiple new and past satellite sensors towards developing remote sensing models for inland and coastal waters. My primary research interest is the applications of remote sensing and geospatial science in water resources, mangroves/forest/vegetation, and climate change studies. I finished my PhD at University of Georgia where I was involved in leading several NASA and NSF projects that have utilized multi-platform remote sensing data toward aquatic, environmental, and natural resource management issues. My role in these projects was to develop remote sensing models, analyze data, and extract useful information and finally lead to write manuscripts for publication in peer reviewed journals. I also maintain the CyanoTRACKER social media platforms (https://twitter.com/cyanotracker) (https://www.facebook.com/cyanotracker) for this project, which is helpful to disseminate the timely information regarding CyanoHABs to the public and observe the broader impact of the project.
