Dr. Huang's research primarily focuses on human-environment interaction, computational social sciences, vulnerability and resilience, urban informatics, disaster mapping and mitigation, GeoAI and deep learning, and disaster remote sensing. Different from traditional geospatial analysis, his research takes advantage of rapidly growing data availability through the utilization of emerging, innovative data sources and the development of advanced geospatial analytical techniques to address existing/future challenges in disaster studies (e.g., real-time monitoring, assessment, and mitigation) and human society (e.g., human behaviors, vulnerability, and inequity) from Big Data and spatiotemporal perspectives. He built an academic career integrating his research and wide‐reaching public service while engaging with communities, particularly socially disadvantaged communities.
