His primary scientific interests are in Remote sensing, Satellite, Water content, Brightness temperature and Climatology. His work carried out in the field of Remote sensing brings together such families of science as Sky, Atmospheric correction, Longwave, Snow and Geostationary orbit. He works mostly in the field of Satellite, limiting it down to concerns involving Radiative transfer and, occasionally, Atmospheric model and Radiometry.

His Water content research incorporates elements of Moisture, Soil science, Evapotranspiration and L band. His research in Brightness temperature intersects with topics in Radiometer, Active passive, Atmospheric sciences, Thermal inertia and Incidence. In the subject of general Meteorology, his work in Precipitable water is often linked to Land based, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • High-resolution retrieval of cloud microphysical properties and surface solar radiation using Himawari-8/AHI next-generation geostationary satellite (27 citations)
  • Assessment of MODIS-Based Fractional Snow Cover Products Over the Tibetan Plateau (13 citations)
  • Recovering Land Surface Temperature Under Cloudy Skies Considering the Solar‐Cloud‐Satellite Geometry: Application to MODIS and Landsat‐8 Data (10 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Optics
  • Meteorology
  • Astronomy

Remote sensing, Climatology, Satellite, Land surface temperature and Mean squared error are his primary areas of study. His research in Radiometer and Radiance are components of Remote sensing. Radiometer connects with themes related to Water content in his study.

The concepts of his Climatology study are interwoven with issues in Cloud cover and Latitude. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmospheric radiative transfer codes and Atmospheric model. His work in the fields of Land surface temperature, such as Split window, overlaps with other areas such as Satellite geometry, Regression analysis and Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient.
