Brief Introduction of Prof. Dr. Hanjiang WEN:

Prof. Dr. Hanjiang WEN, born in March 1966 in China, studied mathematics at the department of Mathematics of Wuhan University in China from September 1983 to July 1987, and got his Bachelor of Science in 1987. After that Prof. Dr. WEN studied geodesy at School of Geodesy and Geomatics of Wuhan University from September 1987 to January 1990 and got his Master degree of Engineering in 1990. He studied geodesy at the Institute of Theoretical Geodesy of Graz University of Technology in Austria from October 1996 to August 1999, and got his Ph.D degree in Austria in 1999. Prof. Dr. WEN did researches as a guest scientist in GeoForschungdZentrum Potsdam of Germany from April 2001 to June 2004.
Prof. Dr. WEN currently works as a professor in the Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping, and is deputy director of key laboratory of Geo-informatics of National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geoinformation. He was a vice-chair of working group 1 of UN-GGIM-AP from 2009-2015.
His research interests focuses on satellite altimetry and satellite gravimetry. He is now in charge of a project titled “Researches on the mass migration in shallow layer of the Earth and its mechanisms by using time-variable gravity field of the Earth” which is funded by National Key Basic Research Program from Ministry of Science and Technology of China (2013CB733302, from January 2013 to December 2017). He is also in charge of a project for studying the mass variation and ice-sheet height changed by combining satellite altimetry and time-variable gravity field models, funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China (Jan.2013-Jan.2016).
Prof. Dr. Wen is the contactor from Chinese Academy of Surveying and Mapping in the Thematic Network Program “Modern Geodetic Space Techniques for Global Change Monitoring”. He will focus on spherical wavelet modeling and ice-sheet variations in Antarctica etc., for example the spherical wavelet modeling of GPS velocity and the modeling of local gravity field.
