Bingwen Qiu's research interests focus on remote sensing time series methods for agricultural crops mapping. She has developed semi-automatic/automatic mapping methods for exploring spatiotemporal dynamics of paddy rice, winter wheat and maize in China during the past few decades. Future work will focus on the multi-dimensional characterization of croplands, the quantity, quality, cropping intensity, agricultural structures, crop planting as well as the management activities such as greenhouse and irrigation.

I'm an undergraduate student double majoring in Earth Sciences and Environmental Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Currently, at Carnegie, I am analyzing the precipitation output from a climate simulation with aerosols conducted in the Community Atmosphere Model 5. My research is focused on Indonesia's precipitation rate response to aerosols emitted locally versus those emitted from 7 other regions, independently (China, India, East Africa, South Africa, European Union, and United States).
