Working at Weyerhaeuser as a postdoc. Feel different, since the environment is total different. What I am doing is going to put into practice. It is really going to help the company save money. As a student in school, the research is just research. The results are papers or reports. In a company, the research is money. People expect you to gain or save money from your research. No one wants to give money to research whose results will useful in 50 years later. It is a kind of applied science.
Just gave a presentation in AAG 2012. Using a novel metric called AVI, which incorporate the intensity of the waveform lidar data and the locations of the layers, to estimate the biomass in the field for the forest biomass. Hopefully, a paper is coming soon. Dr. Giorgos Mountrakis is the chair of my session.
Getting tired of programming with Matlab. Since learning C# these days, I cannot wait to programming waveform processing algorithm in C#. Objected-Oriented, haha~
Get ready for my presentation about LVIS data processing.
Three weeks for the proposal. So many papers! Cross my fingers!
