Li Fang received the B.Sc degree in Geographic Information Systems from Wuhan University, Hubei, China, in 2005, the M.Sc. in Geographic and Cartographic Sciences and the Ph.D. degree in Earth System and Geoinformation Sciences from George Mason University (GMU), Fairfax, VA, U.S., in 2011 and in 2012, respectively. During obtaining Ph.D. degree in GMU, she worked as research assistant in Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China and received Ph.D. degree in Cartography and Geographical Information System in 2013. Her research interests focus on the reversion and applications of land surface temperature (LST). During her study in GMU, she engaged in NOAA PSID projects as a key member to develop a software package for operational Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite LST product. She is currently a research associate with the National Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service Center for Satellite Applications and Research, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, College Park, MD. Her current research area is the extraction of land-surface parameters (temperature, emissivity and surface radiation) from multi-source remote sensing (active/passive, multi-angle, and multi-channel) in support of drought monitoring.
