His research interest focuses on urban thermal environment, climate change, ecosystem service and sustainability, by use of geospatial technologies (GIS, RS, geostatistics, geovisualization, etc.) for sustainable development at multiple scales. Since graduating from the University of Graduate, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in July 2006, he has been working as a professor in Jiaying University, teaching several courses such as Principle of GIS, Remote Sensing, Application of GIS Software-ArcGIS, English for GIS, Environment and Sustainable Development, and so on. He earned my Ph.D. in human geography from the University of Graduate, CAS in July 2007 and earned a postdoctoral certificate of environmental science and engineering from the Research Center for Eco-environmental Sciences, CAS in December 2011. He has been a trustee of Guangdong Society for Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems and a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) since 2011, a member of the Geographical Society of China (GSC) since 2006, and a member of Guangdong Association for Sustainable Development since 2004. I had been a visiting scholar at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, May 2013 -Aug. 2014. And at present I have been conducting a visiting scholar research at the University of Hawaii at Manoa from Sep. 2018 to Sep. 2019.
As a principle investigator (PI), he completed one sub-project of the Knowledge Innovation Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Grant No.KZCX2-YW-BR-03 in 2009, one project of Sciences and Technology Program of Guangdong Province in 2016, one project of the Open Fund of State Key Laboratory of Loess and Quaternary Geology in 2015, one collaborative sub-project of high level science and technology innovation platform ("985" Program) by the Institute of Global Environmental Chang, Xi'an Jiaotong University in 2015, one teaching reform project of Guangdong Provincial Colleges (CS100-GDCS041) in 2012, and one key project of New Century Education and Teaching Reform Program of Jiaying University in 2011. And as a main team member, he participated in carrying out two projects of Natural Science Foundation of China, one project of Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province, and three projects of Science and Technology Program of Guangdong Province. At present, his ongoing project funded by the Natural Science Foundation of Guangdong Province focuses on investigating thermal environmental effect of landscape pattern evolution in Pearl River Delta Urban Agglomeration.
Since 2000, he has so far published more than 60 peer-reviewed papers in the scientific journals/conferences. And he directed several undergraduate teams to attend the Contest of University GIS across China, winning a second place prize, an excellent prize, a consolation prize, and an outstanding instructor award, etc. He also won many honorary titles such as an excellent CPC member by the Guangzhou Institute of Geochemistry, CAS and an excellent individual in scientific research by Jiaying University, and so on. What's more, he was a training object of the “Colleges Qian-Bai-Shi Talents Training Program” of Guangdong Province, and one of the first session training objects of the Young and Middle-aged Backbone Teachers Key Training Program of Jiaying University.
