I am a professor in the School of Planning and Co-Director of the
Joint Center of Geographic Information Systems and Spatial Analysis at the
University of Cincinnati. I teach courses in Geographic Information
System (GIS), environmental planning, statistics, and research methods. My
research interests are in the areas of environmental planning and integrated
applications of GIS, visualization, and modeling in planning and urban studies,
such as environment and ecological protection, housing and urban livability,
land-air and land-water modeling as well as river and watershed water modeling.
Prior to the University of Cincinnati, I worked as a planning, environment,
and GIS consultant in China and the United States. His recent passion is to
promote healthy and resilient urbanization using ecological wisdom and
ecological aesthetics principles. You may find my publications in journals in environmental, planning, and geography. I commit
to respecting nature, seeking harmony between nature and humans, and
pursuing a good life inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
