Big and dynamic spatial-temporal data have been, and continue to be, collected with modern data acquisition techniques such as global positioning systems (GPS), high-resolution remote sensing, census surveys, and internet-based volunteered geographic information. The research efforts in our lab focus on the development of new theory, methodology, and their applications to help understand massive and complex spatial data, acquire new insights and knowledge, and better support decision and policy making. Specifically, we have been conducting research in the following closely related areas (for each you may find related publications and software on this site):

  • Developing new computational, visual analytical, and statistical methods to process, analyze, and understand complex and massive geospatial and temporal data;
  • Addressing critical application problems concerning the environment, human society, and the interaction among them, such as climate change, public health,  security, migration, and transportation.

To Prospective Graduate Students: We are always looking for talented graduate students. The Department of Geography at University of South Carolina is among the strongest geography programs in the U.S. (top 10 in the NRC survey), where you can work with world-renowned scholars. Please follow the procedure to apply.
