I am an Assistant Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at University at Buffalo. I've earned a Ph.D. from Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Urban Design and Planning in University of Washington in 2013.

My general interests include the built environment, urban form, health, GIScience, and spatial data analysis.

My current research primarily focuses on the relationship between the built environment, walking, and health outcomes. Recently, I published papers on walking activity detection and sidewalk GIS data production.

Before joining UB, I was a research associate at Urban Form Lab in University of Washington, and a urban designer/researcher at Seoul Development Institute (currently the Seoul Institute).
