Spatial Analytics and Visualization (SAVI) Center

The SAVi Center at SJSU uses the power of geography and Geographic Information Science to produce impactful research and professional services to serve our university departments, neighborhood organizations, public agencies and private sector entities in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area.

Citizen Science GIS

Citizen Science GIS, a 2017 Esri Special Achievement in GIS Award winner (one of four higher education awardees worldwide), is housed at UCF Department of Sociology and the UCF College of Sciences Geospatial Technologies Cluster lead by Dr. Timothy Hawthorne. We are a diverse group of faculty, researchers, students, and community partners around the world committed to strengthening the connections between science and society. Checkout our website and facebook/twitter for more information and oppotunities. We are hiring Undergraduate Research Assistants and Graduate Research Assistants.

Geo-statistical algorithms & ST-Cokriging

For my doctoral dissertation, I developed and implemented a novel geo-statistical method that used to assimilate multi-scale data sets with different temporal sampling frequencies and different spatial densities. The algorithm has been made available in Python and ArcGIS packages with a user-friendly interface. High-performance computing on supercomputer and parallel computing are utilized to enhance the efficiency of the algorithm.

Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo)

I am in the developer team of GRASS7 for satellite image segmentation module (i.segment). GRASS GIS, commonly referred to as GRASS (Geographic Resources Analysis Support System), is a free and open source Geographic Information System (GIS) software suite used for geospatial data management and analysis, image processing, graphics and maps production, spatial modeling, and visualization.
