Research Interests

remote sensing; emissions; air quality


Dr. Fei Liu received her Ph. D. in 2015 from the Tsinghua University, Beijing, China and her BA in 2010 from the University of Science and Technology of China, Hefei, China. Her Ph.D. thesis was satellite remote sensing of the nitrogen dioxide emissions from anthropogenic sources in China. As a visiting scholar at the Max-Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany in 2014, her research focused on inferring NOx emissions and corresponding atmospheric lifetimes from satellite NO2 observations. As a Postdoc in Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI), De Bilt, Netherlands in 2016, her research involved the regional air quality model simulation and validation. She joined GESTAR in 2017 and has been working in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Branch of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Her research involves advancing the estimates of emissions inferred from satellite data. Dr. Liu received the 2019 NASA exceptional scientific achievement medal for her innovation in creating a merged sulfur dioxide emission inventory for air quality and aerosol modeling to support NASA missions, climate and human health studies.
