Lingling Liu (she/her) is a Senior Research Specialist in Data Science with expertise in remote sensing and geospatial data. Dr. Liu is also part of the Natural Capital Project (NatCap). The projects she is currently working on include building a living database for biocontrol analysis and prediction and an urban decision-support tool integrating earth observations, socioeconomic data, and ecosystem service models. Her research focuses on applying earth observations into global ecosystem service models and developing remote sensing algorithms and products for investigating land cover and land use change, and climate-terrestrial ecosystem interaction. Lingling previously worked as remote sensing data scientist at the NatCap of Stanford University and a postdoctoral fellow at the Geospatial Sciences Center of Excellence (GSCE) of South Dakota State University, where she focused on development and evaluation of a VIIRS global land surface phenology product for NASA. Lingling earned her Ph.D. in cartography and Geographic information system (GIS) from the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
