Dr. Yuyu Zhou is a geographical scientist at the Joint Global Change Research Institute, a partnership of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and the University of Maryland. He received his B.S. degree in geography and M.S. degree in remote sensing from Beijing Normal University and his Ph.D. degree in environmental sciences from University of Rhode Island. His research focuses on applications of remote sensing, GIS, Integrated Assessment Modeling, and spatial analysis to understand the problems of global environmental change and their potential solutions. In particular, he is interested in interdisciplinary research including energy resources, demand, and climate change impacts; land cover/land use change and the socio-economic drivers and impact; high spatial and temporal energy and emissions modeling; andhydrology and ecosystem modeling.Currently, he is conducting global climate change research at PNNL within a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scientists who develop and apply an integrated global land use-energy-economy model. He was awarded a NASA Land-Cover Land-Use Change (LCLUC) Research Grant for Early Career Scientist to study global urban expansion in the context of climate change.
