I am a geographer and GIScientist interested in spatio-temporal data modeling, big data analytics, AI/machine learning, and geocomputation. My current research focuses on:
(1) developing new data models and analytical tools for multi-scale spatio-temporal analysis, (2) utilizing GIS and spatial data science to support disaster management and community/infrastructure resilience assessment, and (3) spatial analysis of social disparities and environmental justice related to natural disasters.
I lead the Laboratory of Computational Sapatial Science for Sustainability (COMPASS Lab) at USF.
We are calling for sessions and abstracts for the Symposium on Scale in Spatial Analytics and Modeling in the 2022 Annual Meetings of AAG.
GA position is available from 2022 fall semester.
Website for the NSF-funded CroScalar project is online. Tools and sef-paced tutorials about the multi-scale spatio-temporal modeling framework (MSTF) will be available in this website.
