Geographer / Spatial Data Scientist
My name is Hoeyun Kwon (권회윤, in Korean). I am a (incoming) Postdoctoral Associate at the Institute of Behavioral Science, University of Colorado Boulder. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Geographical and Sustainability Sciences at the University of Iowa. I was also a member of the Geo-Social lab.
My 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.
