Yanjia Cao

Yanjia CaoCurrent – PhD Student at the University of Maryland.


I am a Master student in University at Buffalo-State University of New York since Fall 2012, expected to graduate in June 2014. My research interest is spatial and temporal analysis, exposure event, and community resilience. I would be a PhD Student in University of Iowa from 2014 Fall, still working on space-time application in health or other human-environment interactions.

I have been working as a research assistant in the department of urban and regional planning since March 2013. I have been dealing with ArcGIS Server, Flex Viewer Developing, and GIS data analysis for University at Buffalo Regional Institute and Urban Design Project (UBRI/UDP).

I also participated in Hurricane Sandy Damage Assessment in November 2012, by pointing inundation places and roof damaged buidings on NOAA images. I also did some work associated with social media by correcting coordinates of injured locations.
