Welcome to Urban CoLab

We are a dynamic research initiative based at Wuhan University, China. The Co in the lab name stands for collective, complexity, computation and collaboration. Our mission is to develop data-driven, human-centric, and edge-cutting methodologies for tackling urban problems from a geospatial perspective.

To this end, we leverage a couple of urban sensing data sets to explore the complexity of human mobility patterns and urban spatio-temporal structures. We want to be able to build the sophisticated data analytics to answer the scientific questions we deem most important (see Research). We also frequently exchange ideas and work with our collaborators from the PKU Spatio-Temporal Social Sensing (\(S^{3}\)) Lab, as well as with the colleagues from our world-class giscience section.

We are always looking for passionate new Bachelor students, Master students, PhD students, and Postdocs interested in Urban Big Data Analytics to join the team (more info) !

We are grateful for funding from Wuhan University, NSFC, NKPs and LIESMARS.




Chaogui is not able to receive review inviation via his PKU email address. Please send invitations to his WHU email (cgkang@whu.edu.cn).
