I am Rongxiang Su (Open to work), a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in Geography in the Department of Geography at the University of California Santa Barbara, advised by Dr. Konstadinos Goulias and Dr. Somayeh Dodge. My research is focused on understanding human mobility patterns and travel behavior using spatio-temporal analytics, statistical models, and machine learning techniques. I am also working on novel time geographic-based approaches to trace human contacts and human interaction patterns using big GPS tracking data. In general, my research aims to understand how people move and interact in space and time.
- [July, 2022] Our paper A classification framework and computational methods for human interaction analysis using movement data is now available online in Transactions in GIS! I also presented this research at ESRI UC Conference in San Diego this month.
