I am Bijan Seyednasrollah.

I have moved to Richardson Lab at Harvard after receving my PhD from The Clark Lab at Duke.

I am interested in modeling and visualizing complex processes of the environment.

Learn about what I do

Most of my works consist of ...






I often use hierarchical modeling, geospatial techniques, remoteley sensed / field data and numerical analyses to solve my problems. I employ combinations of platforms, tools and programming languages to implement/interpret my projects.

Here’s some examples of my recent projects

Ranging from environmental sciences to cutting-edge engineering problems.

Functional traits

A hierarchical framework for continental-scale modeling of plant functional traits across the US.

Spring phenology

A state-space model to model green-up phenology in the south-east over space and time.

Monitoring droughts

Remotely sensed monitroing of canopy water stress based on land surface temperature.

Radiative energy

A scalable framework to quantify radiation on snow-covered forest floor for hydrologic purposes.


An analytic model to estimate viewable fraciton of sky for modeling natrual environments.

Oil reservoir

3-D simulations of multiphase flow through natural porous media in geological time steps.
