I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at Chosun University, Republic of Korea, leading the Geo-Spatial Data Science Group. My research interests are in three main areas: Spatial data science, dynamism, and uncertainty with visualization. My approach is based on robust statistic methods and topological structures to get a better overall sense of what the data are like. These research interests are on advancing the core algorithms and methodologies in spatiotemporal data modeling and analytics. Progress will lead to new fields of inquiry, such as interaction on human societies, observations of nature, and dynamics of coupled natural and human systems.

Previously I was a postdoctoral research associate at CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies in the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My duties of this appointment focus on research and education related CyberGIS and associated applications, and on methods and algorithms for computing and data-intensive geospatial problem-solving. My supervisor was Professor Shaowen Wang, and I was also partially supervised by Professor Clair Sullivan.

During my Ph.D. studies, I studied the foundations of spatial computing in highly distributed environmental sensor systems, like wireless geosensor networks. This research shows how decentralized algorithms can be used efficiently to monitor the qualitative characteristics of spatiotemporal fields, such as temperature or noise pollution. This work helps us to make sense of big data from environmental sensor systems. I have a Ph.D. degree from the University of Melbourne, supervised by Professor Matt Duckham.
