Research Interests

Dr. Jianqing Feng's research focuses on studying the physical properties of lunar regolith by remote sensing. He is interested in thermal modeling and numerical simulation of brightness temperature of lunar surface in microwave band. He also works on data processing and interpretation of lunar penetrating radar. He is currently trying to combine the Diviner data and Microwave Radiometer data to constrain the temperature profile of lunar subsurface.

Professional History

Dr. Feng holds a B.S. in Geochemistry from University of Science and Technology of China (2006). He received his M.S.(2009) and Ph.D.(2015) in Astrophysics from the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. He joined the National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC) as a Research Scientist in 2009. During the time he worked for NAOC, he was deeply engaged in the Chinese Lunar Exploration Project and responsible for data pre-processing and analysis. He studied the physical properties of lunar regolith by using the Chang'e-1 and Chang'e-2 Microwave Radiometer data. What's more, he was a member of the team which is in charge of data processing and interpretation of Lunar Penetrating Radar onboard Chang'e-3. Dr. Feng joined PSI in September, 2018.
