Adeniran is a Visiting PhD student from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. His research focuses on thermal remote sensing and urban thermal comfort, including the processing of satellite data for addressing important environmental problems
Mohammad received his Bachelor’s degree in 2005 from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) and Master’s in Remote Sensing & GIS from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand in 2014. His research aims to develop new or improve current object-based segmentation algorithms, propose a new method for segmentation evaluation and finally identify the applicability of existing classification algorithms in object-based image analysis (OBIA).
Masoud is a new Ph.D student in Department of Geography and Planning. He got his Master of Engineering degree in remote sensing from Univ. of Isfahan and Bachelor of Engineering from Univ. of Tehran. His research focuses on remote sensing and AI.
Kirsten was an MSc and now PhD student in the department of Geography and Planning. She is interested in the spatial analysis of infectious disease using GIS and statistical modelling.
Hong's research topic is “Analyzing and Modelling Regional Travel-related Energy Consumption using System Dynamics Approach”.
The aim of this study to provide an experimental simulation platform to explore the complex and interdependent relationships between the various factors affecting the travel-related energy consumption, and investigate the possible outcomes of different scenarios under alternative government policies on urban transportation energy use and other market-driven factors beyond government control.
Jiahang is an MSc student in the Department of Geography and Planning. He received his Bachelor’s degree in GIS from the University of Toronto. Currently, He is conducting research related to disease transmission and human mobility.

Ilia is currently a postdoctoral fellow. He got his Ph.D degree from the University of Lethbridge, Alberta. His research focuses on forest disturbance mapping and monitoring using time-series satellite data, including optical (Landsat, Sentinel-2, and PlanetScope), SAR (Sentinel-1), and LiDAR (GEDI) data. His research goals are to 1) develop the fully automated Unsupervised Classification to Change (UC-Change) technique, 2) increase the spatial and temporal resolution of forest change maps, and 3) develop new ways of extracting information applicable to sustainable forestry planning and decision making, such as information about changes in stand composition in areas affected by logging and forest fires.
Dr. Gong is an Associate Professor at Nanjing University of Information Science and Technology, China. His research interests include assimilation of multi-source meteorological data, validation of satellite remote sensing products, water color and temperature remote sensing.
Dr. Yuan is an associate professor from the College of Land Science & Technology, China University of Geosciences (Beijing). His research interests focus on using geospatial datasets (e.g., satellite images and mobile data) and spatial analysis techniques to study dynamic patterns of urban land use/cover and socioeconomic activities. In recent years, he has been working on human mobility and city connectivity by integrating mobile and satellite data, trying to know how they interact with each other.
