Prof. Aban

Dr. Jose Edgardo Aban is currently Senior Lecturer at Department of Geography, Development and Environmental Studies, Faculty of Arts ad Sciences, Universiti of Brunei Darussalam (UBD). He holds a Doctor of Philosophy and Master of Science in Remote Sensing from Chiba University, Japan, and University of the Philippines, respectively, and a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the latter university.

He is a strong advocate of self-sufficiency through education in satellite development among ASEAN, and has initiated a number of campaigns in the Philippines for its own local satellite development and applications. Dr. Aban is a seasoned research manager, having served for almost two decades at the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) of the Philippines. Prior to joining UBD, he also served as Project Manager of the GIS-based project dubbed, “Communication and Information Systems for the Control of Avian Influenza (CISCAI) of the ASEAN Foundation.

His research interests are quite varied ranging from land use/cover change analysis; global change analysis; ecosystems change research; applications of non-parametric methods for global change analysis and modeling (power and singular spectrum analysis of multi-temporal datasets) using satellite data (e.g. NDVI) and climatic data; development of pre-processing algorithms for noise reduction in satellite images; phenological change analysis and its relationship with changes floral and faunal populations; and climate change impacts (sea-level rise scenarios) modeling with the use of digital elevation modeling (DEM); climatic oscillations (e.g. ENSO, PDO).
