Siyuan Tian received her Master’s degree in Geomatics (2013) from the University of Melbourne and her PhD (2019) in Earth Sciences from the Australian National University. In her PhD she addressed the potential of forecasting drought impacts months ahead through the assimilation of multiple satellite water observations into an ecohydrological model.

Siyuan is an early career researcher with a strong background in remote sensing, hydrology and geodesy. She was involved in several multidisciplinary research projects such as biomass modelling using radar and LiDAR observations, UAV data collection and fusion, burn severity mapping, and improving operational and forecast modelling with data assimilation. She is interested in exploring the use of Earth Observations together with biophysical modelling to understand the interaction between the vegetation and the hydrologic cycle.

Areas of interest:
• Satellite remote sensing
• Data assimilation
• Land surface modelling
• Water resources assessments
• Ecohydrology
• Geomatic engineering
