Dr. Huang is interested in utilizing GIS, remote sensing, and spatial analysis to analyze the spatial distribution of wildlife and their habitat. His current projects include quantifying the variability of the predicted giant panda future habitat, examining spatial temporal variability of resource availability in global grassland systems, and mapping forest and deforestation in Myanmar. Qiongyu earned his bachelor’s degree in biotechnology from Zhejiang University, and his graduate degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park. His doctoral dissertation focuses on continental scale avian biodiversity distribution and the long-term change of avian distribution in North America. He worked closely with remote sensing scientists at the University Maryland and ornithologists at USGS-Patuxent Wildlife Research Center.
