Biography

  • My name is Zhiyong Zhou, a Ph.D. student at the GIScience Center of Department of Geography at University of Zurich. My advisors are Prof. Dr. Haosheng Huang and Prof. Dr. Robert Weibel.
  • I obtained the B.E degree with Honours and the M.E degree with Honours both from the School of Geography and Information Engineering of China University of Geosciences (Wuhan). I was a member of UbiLoc from 2013 to 2018.
  • My work lies in the intersection of GIScience, spatial cognition, AI, and human-computer interaction. I am particularly interested in the computatioanl stuff for spatial problems in computers and the cognitive stuff from spatial tasks of humans.
