I am now working as a postdoc researcher at ETH Zurich. I am currently working with Prof. Martin Raubal at the Mobility Information Engineering Lab. Before that, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, collaborated with Prof. Mei-Po Kwan, Dr. Xintao Liu and Dr. Lilian Pun. I received my doctor's degree from the School of Remote Sensing and Information Engineering, Wuhan University, supervised by Prof. Kun Qin.

COMMIT - Context-Aware Mobility Mining Tools
This project is motivated by the fact that in order to gain insights into the guiding principles of human mobility, computational methods for context-aware, longitudinal analyses of human mobility behavior are needed, and can be expected to have high societal significance and relevance for a broad range of scientific disciplines and related industrial sectors. Its aim is to directly address these issues and develop a comprehensive open source framework, which includes generalizable and reusable methods explicitly targeted at the spatio-temporal analysis of semantically enriched longitudinal movement data sets
The Swiss Competence Center for Energy Research - Efficient Technologies and Systems for Mobility (SCCER Mobility) aims at developing the knowledge and technologies essential for the transition from the current fossil fuel based transportation system to a sustainable one, featuring minimal CO2 output, primary energy demand as well as virtually zero-pollutant emissions. Research carried out within SCCER Mobility is organized into five different Capacity Areas, focusing on battery systems, fuel cells and increasing the efficiency of internal combustion engines, minimization of vehicular energy demand, energy infrastructure for future mobility as well as the assessment of entire mobility systems.
SBB Green Class
In the context of integrated mobility offers currently gaining in importance, SBB is collaborating with BMW Switzerland to develop a combined mobility solution, and test it with 140 test customers in a one-year pilot project. We provide the lead scientific support for this new research project SBB Green Class, and will use surveys, interviews and spatio-temporal movement data analyses to examine how such a comprehensive multi-modal mobility offer influences people's mobility behavior.
