Research and Professional Interests

My undergraduate background in urban studies and planning led me to being curious in the application of GIS and spatial data analysis in urban settings. My research interests lie in GIS, health geography, human mobility and smart cities. 

Why Geography, Geomatics and Environment at UTM?

I chose UTM because of my very supportive supervisor, Dr. Jue Wang, whose research focus aligns with my interest. The GGE department at UTM offers diverse opportunities to learn and develop research skills with the support of our close-knit community of faculty and graduate students
