     Yi Qi   

         Yi Qi is a postdoctoral researcher in the CSTARS lab. His research interests broadly align with developing remote sensing and GIS methodology to understand vegetation dynamics and interaction with climatic change and ecological disturbance. Current research focus on remote sensing of live fuel moisture content, imaging spectroscopy of plant biochemistry and carbon dioxide, wildfire danger and fire ecology. He received a Ph.D. degree in Geography in 2014 from University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT.
