Geovisualization; Spatiotemporal Data Modeling; High Performance Geocomputation; Web-based GIS.

My research interests are moderately diverse, but all fall into the general area of GIScience. They may be grouped into three more specific areas: geovisualization, spatiotemporal data modeling high performance geocomputation and web GIS. The three research areas discussed above are not mutually exclusive but complementary to each other. Natural and social phenomena are featured with high degree of spatial and temporal complexity (e.g., dust storms, wildfires, flight trajectories). To enhance our understandings of these phenomena and to support advanced scientific explorations, I have been working with my colleagues to investigate novel visualization and analytical methods, data management algorithms and state-of-the-art computing techniques. My recent work on using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) to accelerate the visualization of dust storms can be found here.
