Dr. Ning Luo

Doctoral Researcher

Ning Luo is a visiting student in the RD2 group "Land use and resilience", working with the vegetation and agricultural model LPJmL. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate, at College of Agronomy and Biotechnology, China Agricultural University. His research area is maize yield response to extreme events (e.g., heat, drought) and adaptations in practices.  He is also interested in process-based crop models, statistics models and machine learning algorithms.
