Interests: Dr. Qi has a broad interest in developing techniques and models to address global change issues, including: remote sensing and geospatial technologies; environmental monitoring, assessment and modeling; land use and land cover change dynamic assessments; and decision support systems for agriculture. Dr. Qi’s primary professional focus has been on the generation of information and knowledge from satellite images using process-based models and geospatial technologies. Over the past decade, he developed geospatial modeling tools to guide rangeland management and crop irrigation scheduling, incorporated satellite-based biophysical attributes to improve climate modeling and predictions, ingested land use and land cover information in biogeochemical models to improve greenhouse gas emissions and nitrogen leaching, applied geospatial technologies to characterize landscape patterns for large scale ecological assessment, developed innovative way of using free satellite images for improved cropland detection and production estimation, and recently developed innovative approaches to integrate human, environment and climate to understand the coupling nature of human and environment for sustainable development in developing countries in East and Southeast Asia, Central Asia and East and West Africa
