Spring Lecture Series | Dr. Xinyue Ye

xinyue_2

Join us Friday, April 3rd, as we welcome Dr. Xinyue Ye to our Spring Lecture Series. His talk will focus on the introduction of several research tools for spatiotemporal modeling and analytics of social media data, such as information diffusion modeling over time and space, the connection between online activities and real world human behaviors, and new knowledge discovery tools. Some case studies on disaster and public health will be demonstrated.

Dr. Xinyue Ye’s research focuses on space-time analytics development, implementation, and application in the context of big social data and urban/regional science. His work won the national first-place award of “research and analysis” from the US University Economic Development Association in 2011 and he received the emerging scholar award from AAG’s Regional Development and Planning Specialty Group in 2012. He has co-edited eight journal special issues and about 60 journal articles on fostering the interaction of space-time analytics research and socioeconomic dynamics studies. Dr. Ye’s research emphasizes that the application of space-time analytics sheds new light on socioeconomic dynamics research while research questions from socioeconomic dynamics studies push the frontier of space-time analytics innovation.

Dr. Ye is the founding director of Computational Social Science Lab at Kent State University since 2013. Recent and current main federal research projects include University Center Program (Department of Commerce), Coastal Ohio Wind (Department of Energy), Comparative Space-Time Dynamics (National Science Foundation), and Spatiotemporal Modeling of Human Dynamics Across Social Media and Social Networks (National Science Foundation). Since 2011, he serves as Associate Editor of Stochastic Environmental Research & Risk Assessment, a leading SCI journal in spatial statistical modeling.

As always our lectures are free and open to the public. Join us from 12-1 PM on Friday, April 3rd,  from 12-1 PM, at the CUDC, 1309 Euclid Avenue, Suite 200, Cleveland, OH 44115.
