Dr. Guoqing Wang
Postdoctoral Research Associate
Dr. Wang joined the lab in 2018 after completing her Ph.D. in Marine Sciences at the Optical Oceanography Lab at the University of Massachusetts Boston. Her expertise is in the areas of bio-optical oceanography, ocean color, and remote sensing retrievals of phytoplankton pigments using satellite multi- and hyper- spectral imagery. Dr. Wang is currently involved in a number of projects focusing on assessing carbon and phytoplankton dynamics across different coastal environments, including the coastal Arctic, Southeast Asia, and Long Island Sound waters, and assessing impacts of human activities and environmental stressors on coastal ecological processes, development of hypoxic conditions, occurrence of bloom outbreaks, and change in fisheries habitat.
