I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Tennessee who is passionate about data science. I have strong background in math, statistics, and machine learning, and am well versed with machine learning algorithms and libraries in Python and R. My research focuses on the application of high-resolution geospatial data in the study of various Earth-surface processes, especially the hillslope erosion and glacier movement. I emphasize the use of machine-learning methods in advancing our understanding in the geophysical domain.
I have published peer-review journal articles and a book chapter regarding the application of geospatial data in geophysical domains, including Annals of American Association of Geographers, International Journal of Soil and Water Conservation, Journal of Maps, and others. I have membership in professional academic societies including American Geophysical Union, American Association of Geographers, Geological Society of America, and Sigma Xi.
I am also the co-owner of 3 cats, and I love photography (especially portrait photography) and hiking. I also enjoy cooking different types of meals from all around the world.
