A GIScientist, Chaogui Kang teaches in School of Remote Sensing and Information Engineering at Wuhan University. He graduated in GIScience from Nanjing University (B.A., 2009) and Peking University (Ph.D., 2015). He was also visiting student and research affiliate in SENSEable City Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (September 1, 2012 - August 31, 2013), and held a joint position as research associate in Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics at The Hong Kong Polytechnic Unversity (July 21, 2017 - October 17, 2017). 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.

Graduate Students interested in Urban Big Data Analytics are always welcome to join the team !
