Dr. Kang Yang was a NCRL visiting student (2010-2011) and later, a postdoctoral scholar (2015-2017) in the UCLA Department of Geography. He received his PhD in Geography from Nanjing University, based in part on his dissertation work in the United States. His research interests are Greenland hydrology and remote sensing of rivers. Currently, he and his students are investigating how surface meltwater is routed on the Greenland Ice Sheet using satellite remote sensing, regional climate models, and hydrological modeling. They are also working on remote sensing of Arctic rivers. Dr. Yang is now Associate Professor in the School of Geography and Ocean Science, Nanjing University.
