Lun Gao

Lun Gao is a postdoctoral fellow at IonE specializing in remote sensing, hydrology, and agriculture. At IonE, Lun will work on a high-resolution crop mapping project using satellite observations. Prior to joining IonE, Lun was a postdoctoral associate at the Univeristy of Illinois Urbana-Champaign from 2022 to 2024, where he studied plant photosysthesis and the interactions between plant photosysthesis, tropospheric ozone, and drought using satellite observations and eddy covariance measurements. In 2022, Lun got a PhD in Civil Engineering (Water Resources) from the University of Minnesota, where he researched inversion problems for the retrieval of surface soil moisture and vegetation optical depth using microwave satellite observations.
