Researcher biography

Dongxue is conducting research on using proximal and remote sensing data to model and predict the spatial variation of soil physical, chemical and hydrological properties with an emphasis on applying this to the domains of agriculture (i.e., supporting soil management and agricultural production and improving the crop resilience to climate changes). Her research interests are in climate adaption, environmental science, digital soil mapping, remote and proximal sensing, geospatial analysis, and machine learning. At present, she is working on a GRDC project on "Transformational agronomy by sowing grain sorghum in winter" from the aspect of understanding sorghum root growth and function. She conducted her PhD study at School of Biological, Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of New South Wales, Australia.
