Research Interests

I am currently seeking Masters and PhD Students with interests in GIScience, GeoAI, transportation geography, and urban data analytics.  If interested, please contact me via email along with your up-to-date CV.

My research interests concern using GIScience, GeoAI, geospatial data computing, and space-time analytics to study urban transportation as well as issues and challenges within cities from a data-driven perspective. 

Specifically, I am interested in developing novel analysis and modelling techniques to support the analysis of human mobility and accessibility in space and time.  I am also interested in urban analytics with foci on the relationship between transport and public health, urban development, and business applications.

My research goal is not only to make solid methodological contributions to GIS and spatial data science but also to provide meaningful insights and feedback to urban planners and policymakers; thereby, promoting more socially, environmentally, and economically sustainable cities.
