Dr. Pu's research experience and interests are in remote sensing, GIS and spatial statistics with direct applications to natural hazard monitoring, land use/cover change detection, biophysical and biochemical parameters extraction, and coastal and terrestrial ecosystems modeling. His current research interests are in mapping and characterization of seagrass habitats using spacecraft observations and urban environmental studies using thermal and optical remote sensing data with an emphasis on analysis of high spatial and spectral resolution satellite imagery.

Subject Areas:
Data Analysis/Modeling, Ecology, Sustainability
