Zhihao Wang


Master of Science, University at Buffalo-State University of New York. 2010.9 – 2012.6

Bachelor of Engineering, Tongji University. 2006.9 – 2010.6


My research interests are mainly Environmental Modeling with GIS, Extreme Events Response, and Spatial Analysis. Currently I’m working on flood modeling with multi-source data.

I have been trained as a geographer, mostly using GIS and Remote Sensing as tools. I also have backgrounds in Geology, Earth System Sciences, Geophysics.and Computer Science. I am interested in a broad variety of topics in this giant field, and always ready to challenge new stuff.
