Dr. Sorin Popescu's academic interests focus on the application of remote sensing, in particular, and spatial sciences, in general, in natural resources assessment, monitoring, and management. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in Forestry at Virginia Tech. At Texas A&M University, he is currently teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in aerial photography, image interpretation, and remote sensing. His research interests include remote sensing applications in natural resources and forest sciences, assessment of forest fuels, forest volume and biomass, land use and land cover change, forest carbon sources and sinks, and global environmental change. He has developed various algorithms and software tools for multisensor data fusion and for processing LIDAR data for estimating forest biophysical parameters, such as stand density, tree height, crown diameter, volume, and biomass.
