Bio

I'm an assistant professor at Zhengzhou Institute of Surveying and Mapping. And I finished my doctoral study at Lehrstuhl für Kartographie, Technische Universtität München with topic, Labeling Spatial Trajectories in Road Networks using Probabilistic Graphical Models supervised by Prof. Dr.-Ing Liqiu Meng. I graduated from National University of Defense Technology, China in 2010 with a B.Eng. and M.Eng in Information Engineering.

Research Interests

Apply Machine Learning to solve geospatial problems. In particular, I work on graphcial model, spatial trajecotry data.
