Xi Chen

ITI postdoc Xi Chen presents new machine-learning based approach to predict light scattering properties

Dr. Xi Chen, working with Prof. Joe Gomes and Prof. Jun Wang, published their collaborative work presenting a new, machine-learning based, approach to predict light scattering properties of non-spherical dust particles. The approach will have wide applications in satellite remote sensing and climate model predictions. Chen, Gomes, and Wang are affiliated with the University of Iowa Technology Institute.
