- Research Interests/Specializations
Geospatial analysis, nighttime light remote sensing, vulnerability to environmental disasters.
- Bachelor of Engineering in Urban Planning, Nanjing University
- Master of Landscape Architecture (focusing on Environmental Planning), University of California Berkeley
I am interested in using Geographic Information System (RS), Remote Sensing (RS), and spatial analysis techniques (such as spatial statistics) to study issues in urban and environmental planning. My dissertation will be focusing on measuring disaster impact and recovery using longitudinal data, and understand whether the differences between places can be explained by socioeconomic, policy, or other indicators.
