My name is Yingjie Hu. I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), USA. My main research area is in geographic information science (GIScience), with focuses on spatial, temporal, and textual data analytics, geospatial semantics, and geographic information retrieval. I integrate spatial and temporal analysis methods, natural language processing, machine learning and deep learning techniques to discover a variety of knowledge from data, which can support disaster response, urban planning, and other geospatial applications. I am also an Affiliate Professor of the Interdisciplinary Linguistics Program at UTK. I run the Geospatial Semantics and Data Analytics (GSDA) Lab.
