I’m very pleased to welcome Denis Mutiibwa, who is starting as a postdoc this January.
Chief among the projects Denis will be working on is a new NASA-funded activity characterizing thermal stress in birds in the Southwest using remote sensing data, instrumental observations, and modeling.
Originally from Kampala, Uganda, Denis earned a Ph.D, major Engineering, Masters in Statistics and Biological Systems Engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Bachelor’s degree from Alexandria University-Egypt.
His general research interests include:
- Assessing the impacts and trends of climate change on ecosystems and hydrological processes.
- Detection of anthropogenic signals on climate change.
- Determining the impact of Land Use/Land Cover changes on Climate Change.
- Remote sensing-based partitioning and estimation of surface energy fluxes and crop coefficients.
- Time Series and Spatial analysis of climate and hydrological data.
And outside of research, Denis likes playing guitars, playing soccer, and supporting the Huskers!
We’ll see if we can make him a Wolf Pack fan as well.
