My research aims at generating both theoretical and actionable insights from spatiotemporal data by exploring the frontiers that bridge geospatial analytics, artificial intelligence, and social sensing. Overall, I use integrated thinking and cross-disciplinary methods to facilitate Intelligent Spatial Understanding and Geographic Knowledge Discovery, focusing on the human-environment complexities covering topics in population, urban dynamics, public health, human mobility, spatial networks, socioeconomic sustainability, crime, business optimization, etc. I teach in the areas of geographic information science, numerical spatial analysis, geospatial artificial intelligence and urban socia sensing.
