Assistant Professor Department of Earth and Space Sciences
Jiangjun Ran obtained his doctoral degree from Delft University of Technology in 2017. Then he moved to Hong Kong and worked at Chinese University of Hong Kong as a postdoctoral fellow. From Dec. 2018, he has been working at Southern University of Science and Technology as an assistant professor. His research interests are space Geodesy, satellite gravimetry, Earth's surface mass transportation, temporal and static gravity field determination using GRACE and GRACE-FO data, etc. By far, he has published 13 SCI papers in high-ranking journals, including The Cryosphere, Journal of Geodesy, Geophysical Journal International，Journal of Geodynamics, Remote Sensing, Marine Geophysical Research, etc. Among them, 9 papers are published as the first/corresponding author. Furthermore, he serves as a reviewer of Journal of Geodesy，Remote Sensing of Environment, etc.

Surface mass migration of the earth system (remote sensing/space geodesy observations and physical mechanism interpretation)
Design of next generation gravity satellite mission constellation
High precision time-varying earth gravity field model inversion（GRACE, GRACE-FO）
Satellite precise positioning and orbit determination（GNSS）
