More than a Geospatial Analyst
 

 My name is Chengxi Zhu, a master student at the Deparment of Geography , University at Buffalo, The State University of New York . I study Geographic Information Science and Cartography, a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) major, and specifically apply my expertise to Spatial Statistics/Econometrics and Geo-ontology on topics related to Health Geography.

 Besides my own academic works, I also work as a research assistant at National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA) at Buffalo. My works mainly contribute to gully erison researchs by different methods, including developing ArcTools by ArcPy and R – ArcGIS and data analysis as well as visualization.

 Before coming to the U.S., I finished my undergraduate program at the School of Ocean and Earth Science of Tongji University, where I was involved in research on Detected fraud at Point-of-Sale(POS) by geostatistics methods from Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences(CAGS).
