Dr. Huang received his Ph.D. degree from School of Natural Resources at University of Arizona. His dissertation research was focused on regional scale monitoring of long-term semi-arid savanna vegetation change using historical Landsat TM/ETM+ images. After his Ph.D., Dr. Huang continued his research as a postdoctoral fellow in Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution at Stanford University. His postdoctoral research was to investigate the carbon dynamics of pinon-juniper woodlands on the Colorado Plateau using synoptic sensing (AVIRIS, TM/ETM+, MODIS) approaches.

Research interests: global ecology, terrestrial biogeochemistry, alien invasive species science
