I did bachelors in Geoinformatics Engineering, where I learned basic skills related to remote sensing and programming languages. I served at the same school as a Lab Engineer after graduation while working with students in Lab and doing research activities with professors. After that, I completed my MS-Phd from Sungkyunkwan University, South Korea. My MS-Ph.D. research was related to Land Surface Modeling and remote sensing, where I worked on different versions (4.0 and 5.0) of Community Land Model (CLM) under the Community Earth System Modeling (CESM) Framework and various remote sensing datasets (MODIS, SMAP). The research during Ph.D. was related to carbon, water, and energy cycle interactions using modeling, remote sensing, and flux tower observations. Land Surface Modeling (LSM) is my basic research interest with focus on carbon, water, and energy cycle interactions.
Following that background, my research work at Atmosbios is to implement the “stomatal optimization based on xylem hydraulics” parameterization in CLASSIC (Canadian Land Surface Scheme including Biogeochemical Cycles) and to evaluate its impact on carbon and water fluxes for historical and future projections. I am working with Oliver Sonnentag (research supervisor) and two other collaborators: Joe R. Melton from Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) and Alexander Roy from Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
