ABOUT Dr. Lim Hwee San

I, Lim Hwee San, became a lecturer at Unversiti Sains Malaysia (USM) after obtaining a PhD degree at USM in 2006. I obtained my BSc at USM in Geophysics in 2001. After receiving my BSc (Hons), I continued my MSc and PhD under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Mohd. Zubir Mat Jafri and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Khiruddin Abdullah, respectively. I obtained my MSc and PhD degrees in environmental remote sensing at USM in 2003 and 2006, respectively.

My research interests lie generally in the field of optical remote sensing (both passive and active) and digital image processing, particularly as they apply to spectral image data. In both cases, the primary applications are water quality monitoring, air quality monitoring, land cover/change detection, land surface properties, and digital images classification. I am also interested in modelling optical properties of atmospheric aerosols. My current focus is on the applications of ground-based LIDAR and satellite-based LIDAR (e.g., CALIPSO, AIRS) data for air pollution and greenhouse effects.

I am the principal investigator of the Malaysia-Penang's site for NASA's sun photometer network AERONET, as well as a participant to the field campaign, Distributed Regional Aerosol Gridded Observation Networks (DRAGON) Southeast Asia 2012 and the Seven South East Asian Studies (7SEAS) mission. We maintain an atmospheric radiation supersite in collaboration with NASA/NRL, as well as an active membership to the 7SEAS program.

I have published more than 320 articles in the aforementioned areas. I also published five chapters of a book and four monographs. I published 18 articles in national and international journals, with another two being reviewed. I was a senior member of the International Society for Optical Engineering US.

In the research area, I and my research team have been awarded a Bronze Medal at The International Invention Innovation Industrial Design & Technology Exhibition 2003 (ITEX03) for the invention of Environmental Predator. I and my research team were also awarded a Silver Medal in an Expo Science, Technology, & Innovation 2004 (EXPO S&T 2003, MOSTE) for the invention of Real–Time Environmental Sensing. In Expo Science, Technology, & Innovation 2004 (EXPO S&T 2004, MOSTI), I and my research team were awarded with a Silver Medal for the invention of Multispectral Water Quality Sensor and a Bronze Medal for the invention of Real–Time Air Pollution Measurement System. In 2006, the Intelligent Air Pollution Measurements System developed by me and my research team won three awards, namely, Gold Medal at The International Invention Innovation Industrial Design & Technology Exhibition 2006 (ITEX06), Special Award of Best Invention at the World Intellectual Property Organisation Award (WIPO), and Special Award of Best Invention at the Kandiah & Associate Award (KASS). I and my research team were also awarded a Silver Medal at the Invention & Innovation Competition 2007, Malaysia Technology Expo 2007 (MTE 2007) for the invention of Multispectral Cell Freshness Detection System. In 2007, I and my research team were awarded a Silver Medal at the International Exposition of Research and Inventions of Institutions of Higher Learning 2007 (PECIPTA 07) for the invention of FireBuster – A Novel Automatic Fire Detection System. I and my research team were also awarded a Silver Medal at the Pameran Eureka 2007, 56th World Exhibition Of Innovation, Research & New Technologies Brussels, Belgium for the invention of AirWarn: Intelligent Air Pollution Measurements System.

Currently, I have been the Principal Investigator (PI) under the 2nd Research Agreement for the Advanced Land Observation Satellite (ALOS) between the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and the Research Organization (USM) since 2007. Since 2009, I have been the PI under the Announcement of Opportunity (AO) for the Thailand Earth Observation System (THEOS) between the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (Public Organization), Ministry of Science and Technology, Thailand and the Research Organization (USM) since 2009, and the PI under the AO for the OCEANSAT-2 between Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and the Research Organization (USM).

I am particularly intrigued by the use of ALOS data and remote sensing to integrate the understanding of environmental changes in Malaysia. I was a member of The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) U.S.A., International Society for Potogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), Malaysia Nature Society (MNS), and Malaysia Remote Sensing Society (MRSS).
