Fast and Accurate Estimation of Evapotranspiration for Smart Agriculture
The MLSH seminars are targeted towards individuals engaged in research-based activities in the hydrological sciences and will be delivered by scientists who have produced acclaimed research in the field. The concurrent emergence of new technologies, advancements in data-science and new approaches to modelling have expanded the possibility frontier for effective management of our water resources. Not only this, but these developments are uncovering new insights and spawning new discoveries that change our fundamental understanding of the Earth's hydrosphere. "Models, Learning and Sensing in Hydrology" is aimed at propagating the science and techniques of exactly this field of research.
The full schedule for the webinars can be found here, which also includes recordings of past sessions. A link for attending will be sent via email to registered individuals. Colleagues who register once can attend all future talks without the need to register again.
Speaker Introduction: Weiyu Li has received her PhD in Energy Science and Engineering from Stanford University. Her research focuses on data-assimilation and parameter estimation in environmental applications, aiming to provide science-based estimation of evapotranspiration from soil moisture measurements and the quantification of uncertainty inherent in such estimators. Her other research interests include modeling and simulation of electrochemical transport in batteries and biomedical modeling. Prior to her doctoral studies, Weiyu Li obtained her M.Sc. degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from Princeton University. Weiyu Li is the recipient of the Siebel Scholars Award in Energy Science, class of 2023. Furthermore, she has received prestigious awards, including the Henry J. Ramey Fellowship Award for outstanding research in the Department of Energy Science and Engineering at Stanford University, as well as the Princeton University Fellowship in Natural Sciences and Engineering.
