Yun  Hang

Post Doctoral Fellow


Post Doctoral Fellow, Environmental Health

Dr. Yun Hang is broadly interested in the intersection of atmospheric science and public health. She previously worked with Dr. Tristan L'Ecuyer on studying Earth's climate system with satellite remote sensing. Currently, she is working with Dr. Yang Liu on applying satellite data and machine learning algorithms in environmental exposure modeling (i.e., PM2.5 constituents, extreme heat, wildfire). She has been funded by NASA Applied Sciences Equity and Environmental Justice (EJ) program to test the feasibility of using NASA Earth Observations to support EJ communities in Atlanta.
