Our recent team member Dr. Yingwei YAN successfully defended his PhD thesis this very week.
We do congratulate him most cordially!
The thesis was conducted at the National University of Singapore at the Department of Geography before he joined the GIScience Heidelberg team. Yingwei worked for example on using fuzzy set theory to assure the quality of VGI and used methods such as neural networks to predict crop pest risks associated with global climate change.
For his work he was also granted the Esri Young Scholar Award 2016.
We are looking forward to work with him in the area of VGI quality analysis in disaster management and related modeling approaches.
