About the Digital Futures Postdoc Fellow
Puzhao Zhang received his PhD degree in Pattern Recognition and Intelligent Systems from Xidian University, China at the end of 2019. His PhD research was focused on remote sensing and deep learning for change detection.  Since fall, 2017, he has been working on wildfire monitoring with radar and optical remote sensing and deep learning as a joint PhD student at KTH.

Puzhao’s postdoc research will be focused on the development of weakly/self-supervised deep learning method for near real-time wildfire monitoring by the fusion of radar and optical time series. His research interests include satellite imagery analysis, change detection, machine learning/deep learning, and spatio-temporal modelling for environmental change monitoring.
