Hoeyun Kwon

Geographer / Spatial Data Scientist

About Me

My name is Hoeyun Kwon (권회윤, in Korean). I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences at the University of Iowa. I am also a member of the Geo-Social lab, where we develop innovative computational and visual tools to analyze massive geo-social networks and geospatial processes that drive our economy, society, and the environment. 

My major research areas are Geographic Information Science (GIScience), spatiotemporal analysis, social sensing, human mobility, human-environment interactions, health disparities, and social and environmental justice. My research aims to understand the spatiotemporal dynamics of human behaviors during disasters using social sensing data. Specifically, I am interested in identifying the spatiotemporal variations and environmental inequities in the impact of disasters on human behaviors such as human mobility.
