Associate Professor, Texas A&M University
Dr. Huilin Gao is an associate professor in Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University. She received her Ph.D. degree in water resources engineering from Princeton University. Dr. Gao’s primary research interests are hydrologic modeling, land cover land use change, water resources management, and satellite remote sensing in hydrology. In particular, her current research on remote sensing has been focused on using multi-satellite observations (e.g., MODIS, Landsat, AMSR-E, and altimetry data) to monitor storage variations and evaporation losses over global lakes and reservoirs.
Dr. Gao is a member of the AGU Hydrology-Remote Sensing Technical Committee. She is also a recipient of the CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation, and the Gulf Research Program Early-Career Research Fellowship from the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.
