About Me

I am a Ph.D. student in GIScience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, working with Dr. A-Xing Zhu in the SoLIM Lab in Geography Department. My research interests are in geospatial modeling, trajectory data analysis, data mining and geovisual analytics. My dissertation research is focused on knowledge integration in geospatial predictive modeling.
