PostDoc Research Associate | GIST
Dr. Dingfan Xing is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Geography & Sustainability at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, she earned her PhD degree in 2023 in Environmental Science at the College of Environmental Science and Forestry, State University of New York.
Dingfan Xing’s research is directed to the application and development of statistical methods and the uncertainty evaluation for area estimation of forest characteristics and land cover. Specifically, her current research topics include: (1) Small area estimation of forest characteristics using model-assisted estimators; (2) Uncertainty evaluation of sample-based area estimates. The first topic of her research focuses on applying model-assisted estimators to estimate the area of forest characteristics and improve the precision of the estimation by developing new statistical methods. The second topic of her research focuses on developing the advanced methods for estimating confidence intervals and total variance of the area estimation of land cover and land cover change.
