Fine-scale Urban Heat Dynamic

Who is complaining about extreme hot weather? How to monitor and avoid extreme heat in a real-time? What is the spatial distribution of urban heat island? We investigate the urban heat problem extensively with GIS and cyberGIS.

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Geography and GIS at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, under the supervision of Dr. Shaowen Wang. I earned my M.S. in Geography from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2021 and my B.E. in Computer Engineering at the University of Hong Kong in 2018. My research interests include 1) examination and evaluation of heat dynamics in the urban area with cyberGIS and high-performance geospatial computing; 2) feature extraction using Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data; and 3) scientific gateway construction for accessing high-performance computer (HPC).
