I am currently a graduate student in the Geography Department at Pennsylvania State University. I joined the (GeoVISTA Center) under supervision of Prof. Donna Peuquet in Fall 2016. My research topic is "Spatiotemporal Information Diffusion and Network Inference via Sequential Pattern Mining". I am passionate about data-driven and big data analytics in Geographic Information Science, using data mining, machine learning & geo-visual analytics.
In Fall 2014, I got admitted to the University of Pennsylvania for the M.Sc. degree of Urban Spatial Analytics in the School of Design. My research foci include the data science, spatial data analytics - most notably Geographic Information System (GIS) - statistics, R and Python programming, data visualisation and web-based mapping with substantive knowledge under the urban context (e.g., urban land use planning, transportation, natural hazard simulations and predictions).
I received my B.Sc. of Surveying and Mapping from Wuhan University, a top ten in China whose geodesy ranking is No. 1 in June 2014. My bachelor thesis topic is - Reconstruction of 3D City Model based on oblique images.
