Zixia received a PhD in Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Manchester. Following the completion of his PhD, Zixia took on a role as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Exeter. During this tenure, his focus centered on investigating the aerosol vertical profile in the boundary layer, utilizing data gleaned from Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) observations. Presently, Zixia serves as a Research Associate, contributing expertise to both the UKEO Climate Information Service (EOCIS) project and the Global Fire Assimilation System (GFAS) at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
In this capacity, his primary focus revolves around wildfire detection and emissions, employing remote sensing techniques. Zixia’s research pursuits also extend to the application of UAVs for assessing biomass burning emission factors, agricultural observations, and land surface temperatures. In addition to my academic endeavors, Zixia has actively participated in fieldwork organized by the European Space Agency (ESA) in Italy, Laos, and Canada from 2021 to 2023.
