(3) Undergraduate and graduate students

I have been looking forward to building a “Talent Club” program to attract interdisciplinary undergraduates and graduates, so as to form student-oriented research team with students from different grades and backgrounds. The “Talent Club” program will mainly focus on data-, model-, and technology-driven studies in the field of built and natural environment, human activities and health science. I will specifically advocate new ideas, new technology, new direction and new fields, and initiate “seed programs” to support and encourage students to endeavor explorations and innovations.

If you are interested in joining FUSE lab with diverse exposure, feel free to email me at for potential thoughts and ideas.
