Hi there! I am Rongxiang Su, currently a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate (ABD) 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 interests include interaction and movement analysis, human mobility and activity pattern analysis, travel behavior, accessibility and space-time modeling. I have published 15 peer-reviewed articles in prestigious journals and conference proceedings, including Transactions in GIS, Computers, Environment and Urban Systems, Journal of Geographical Systems, Transportation Research Part C, Transportation Research Part A, and Journal of Transport Geography. I am the recipient of the 2022 Jack and Laura Dangermond Fellowship and the 2022 UCSB Geography Excellence in Research Award. I also serve as a peer reviewer for 16 academic journals and conferences.
In my spare time, I enjoy surfing at our campus beach, playing tennis, cooking, listening to podcasts, and visiting national parks!
- [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.
