Welcome to Shan Jiang's Homepage at MIT.
I am a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning (DUSP)
, where I received my Ph.D. in Urban and Regional Planning in the Urban Information Systems (UIS) Group
. My research interests lie in the fields of spatial data analytics, big data analytics, geographic information science (GIScience), and the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in land use, transportation planning, and urban planning, addressing social, economic, and environmental issues in urban areas and their connections with public policy. More specifically, I am interested in (1) understanding the spatial distributions of economic activities and patterns of human activities and mobility, and their interrelationship at the micro- and macro-level; and (2) promoting sustainable development by regulating, influencing, and altering behavior of different agents in both short- and long- terms. I hold Master in City Planning, and Master of Science in Transportation degrees from DUSP and CEE at MIT; a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Urban Planning, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Peking University.
Please feel free to send me any thoughts and comments that you want to share with me.
