Personal profile



Personal profile

Ling Chang received her M.S.E. degree in Geodesy and Survey Engineering in Tongji University, China, and the Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), the Netherlands, in 2010 and 2015. From 2015 to 2018 she was working as a postdoctoral researcher on structural health monitoring of railway infrastructure using satellite radar interferometry (InSAR) at the department of Structural Engineering, TUDelft. 

Since April 2018, she moved to the University of Twente, where she is currently assistant professor in microwave remote sensing at the faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC), department of Earth Observation Science (EOS). Her research interests include statistical hypothesis testing, time series modelling, and change detection, using satellite-borne remote sensing technology, particularly InSAR techniques.
