Lin is a postdoc researcher in Coasts & Ocean Observing Laboratory at CSI. He grew up in Hubei, China, and got a B.S. and M.S. in Beijing to study seismology with GIS and remote sensing techniques. In 2017, he came to Texas and perused a Ph.D. in geophysics at the University of Houston. There he did coastal research using lidar data. He joined CSI in 2021 and started to use remote sensing to study coastal wetlands and landscapes.
Lin currently lives with his family in Greenville, NC. He likes swimming and kayaking in his spare time. He also enjoys watching movies and sports games with his family. His son is 3 years old and energetic.

Dr. Lin Xiong’s research focuses on natural hazards studies using state-of-the-art remote sensing techniques including GNSS, Lidar, and UAV photogrammetry, with a variety of spatial, temporal, and spectral resolution. He wants to develop more efficient and more accurate ecosystem models over coastal areas and better understand how coastal landscapes respond to natural events and human modifications.
