 My academic career focuses on shaping the knowledge of geographic information science (GIScience) and developing geospatial computational methods for improving the understanding of public health and the human environment. I began this work when I was trained as a doctoral student in the National Taiwan University (NTU) Department of Bioenvironmental Systems Engineering in 2000-2006, and afterwards a postdoctoral fellow at the Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences, Academia Sinica in 2007-2008. My early independent research and teaching experiences started in Spring 2008, as being a project-appointed Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at NTU, which was funded by the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control (Taiwan-CDC). During these periods, I broadened my scope to conduct geospatial studies on infectious disease transmission dynamics.
    In August 2009, I joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the NTU Department of Geography. I was promoted to Associate Professor in 2013 and Full Professor in 2017. My major research topics focus on modeling geospatial process in human environment, especially spatial diffusion of epidemics, population mobility structures, and human-environment interactions from local, regional to global scales . Currently and in the near future, I am developing three main interdisciplinary research tracks. The first, I concentrate on developing geospatial computational algorithms for profiling collective human behaviors in time and space. The second track is from a spatial epidemiological perspective on characterizing spatial-temporal structures of diffusion and detecting the outbreak thresholds for epidemic early warning. The last, my research interests also cover the statistical analysis of serial event data in time and space, such as trajectories of pedestrians, serial crimes, eye tracking or any movement data. In recent years, my research/teaching accomplishments include the Excellent Young Investigator Grant awarded from the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) in Taiwan (2014-2016); the Wu Da-Yu Memorial Award from the MOST (2015), which is the most prestigious recognition for young investigators in Taiwan; the Breakthrough Technology Award from the MOST's Future Tech Expo (2017); the NTU
Teaching Awards (2011, 2013, 2016, 2018, 2023) and the Faculty Merit Pay (2016-2023). I am also in charge of several academic journal editorial boards, departments and associations, including editor-in-chief of Journal of Population Studies (2020-2023), guest editor of  Tropical Medicine and Infectious Disease (2022-2023), the chairpersons of NTU Department of Geography (2018-2021), the Geographical Society of ROC (2019-2022), and the Chinese Cartographic Association (2019-2023).
My research continues to be focusing on examining the causes, process and impacts of geospatial spreading and mobility in time and space, especially visualizing and analyzing multidimensional spatial-temporal data from mobile geo-sensors, crowdsourced and open data platforms. Through shaping advanced geospatial sciences, these studies will provide  better understandings of spatial-temporal structures and behavior interactions in human environment.
