Professor Keishi IWASHITA, Ph.D




- Biography

Keishi Iwashita received a BA in civil engineering from the Nihon University College of Science and Technology, an M.Eng from School of Industrial Technology, and double PhDs from the New York University, Academy of Science in 1998 and the Nihon University in 2009, respectively. He has been on the NUCIT(Nihon University, College of Industrial Technology) faculty since 1983 and was one of the founding scientists of NU Remote Sensing. He has led interdisciplinary studies in two areas: one addresses civil engineering field; the other is in the integration of environmental science using remote sensing with computer science and technology. He is a certified fellowship and a temporary faculty of the University of California, Los Angeles, Image mapping Lab. since 2001, and an international cooperative member of USEPA Star Grant Research Program.

In remote sensing field, he specializes in optics, radiative transfer, and remote sensing in order to ascertain various ocean properties: pigments, detritus, dissolved organic matter, shallow bathymetry, and sea grass coverage.
