Zunyi is a remote sensing researcher of terrestrial ecohydrological systems. His PhD work focused on integrating GRACE observations with various other satellite data to study hydrological dynamics, ecological functions and their interactions under the impacts of hydroclimatic extremes. His current Postdoc project is developing a novel approach coupling remote sensing big data techniques (e.g. GEE) with socio-economic analysis and decision making to identify global ‘Uncontested lands’. Then building a cost-effective frame to prioritise their use for SDGs of renewable energy, poverty, food and conservation.
