Shiliu Chen is a Ph.D candidate in Department of Hydraulic Engineering at Tsinghua University (where he obtained his undergraduate degree) and now a visiting student in McColl group. His research interests focus on the land-atmosphere interactions in the context of climate change. He aims to address the following questions: How terrestrial vegetation responses to climate change? And how these changes affect land surface hydrology? His research is primarily based on satellite products, ground observations and process-based models. Currently, he is working with Kaighin on evapotranspiration modeling and estimating.
