Call For Students:

Looking for: MSc and PhD students

I am recruiting MSc and PhD students with interests in space-time analysis of human mobility, as well as modelling environmental exposure and its effects on public health. The ideal candidate should have a strong background in GIS and spatial analysis (better with experience on Python programming). Qualified students are welcome to inquire and apply. Students will implement research in my lab at the University of Toronto Mississauga Campus. More information about our research can be found on my website: http://juewang.space
