A practicing GIScientist, Chaogui Kang teaches in School of Remote Sensing and Information Engineering at Wuhan University and holds a joint position as research associate in Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics at The Hong Kong Polytechnic Unversity. He graduated in GIScience from Nanjing University (B.A., 2009) and from Peking University (Ph.D., 2015). During September 1, 2012 and August 31, 2013, he was visiting student and research affiliate in SENSEable City Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Trained in Geography, Data Science and Complex Network for 10+ years, Chaogui has authored over 20 publications in leading international journals and conferences. His primary research interest lies in Urban Informatics, Spatial-Social Networks and Human Mobility with the assistance of pervasive urban sensing techniques.
I am launching the research initiative Urban CoLab, where “co” stands for “co”llective intelligence, “co”mputing, “co”mplexity and “co”llaborative. In the lab, we leverage a couple of “urban sensing” data sets to explore human mobility patterns and urban spatio-temporal structures. Our mission is to develop “data-driven, human-centric” methodologies for tackling urban problems from a geospatial perspective.
