About me

His research interests center on geospatial analysis of urban structure and dynamics, e.g., topological analysis, scaling hierarchy, and agent-based modeling applied to buildings, streets, and cities, or geospatial big data in general. Inspired by Christopher Alexander’s work, he developed a mathematical model of beauty - beautimeter, which helps address not only why a structure is beautiful, but also how much beauty it has.
