RESEARCH EXPERIENCE – University of Toronto, Mississauga

GIS and Remote Sensing
Quantifying the Rate and Extent of Desertification in Volgograd, Russia
Jan 2020 – Apr 2020
Research designer (Group project); GIS and Remote Sensing; Dr Yuhong He
Measured desertification on 15 images through three indices NDVI (vegetation), NDMI (moisture) and TGSI (soil content) in a day (model builder, ArcGIS)
Incorporated members’ idea in designing the study, report marks (94.3%)
Elaborated, clarified and communicated with all members on the final processing plan to prevent disagreement

GIS and remote sensing
Jan 2020 – Apr 2020
Individual works (Course); GIS and Remote Sensing; Dr Yuhong He
Compared vegetation growth in Mississauga between 2013 and 2017 (90%)
Applied supervised and unsupervised classification to detect changes in Land use Land cover and produced accuracy assessment
Work was used as an example to the class, Final mark 90%

Impact of Highway 413 on GreenBelt Protected area and GTA network system
Jan 2020 – Apr 2020
Individual works (Course); Road and Transportation; Dr Ron Buliung
Converted pdf images into a projected raster file
Analyzed the least cost path and geographic accessibility of 12 cities in the GTA (Network Analyst)
Generated address locator and used it to identify location of interest

Identifying Optimal Locations for the Development of Urban Greenspace
Sept 2019 – Dec 2019
Research designer (Group project); Geographic Information processing: Dr Jue Wang
Created processing tool that performs the same analysis, and can be used in the future or for other location by land use planner
Measured distribution of existing greenspace by applying kernel density
Performed analysis in ArcGIS and python.

Assessing Health spatially through GIS
Sept 2018 – Dec 2018
GIS and Population Health; Dr Kristian Larsen

Analyses of human footprint map to assess the connectivity of natural habitats in selected study areas (case studies) along an urban-exurban gradient.
Sep 2019 – Apr 2020
Independent research study; University of Toronto Mississauga; Dr Helene Wagner
Created a current density map to detect changes in Landscape connectivity impacted by urbanization between 2009 and 2019
The network of habitat patches is vital for organisms with 50m dispersal distance
Identified important habitat patches that vital to the overall connectivity as a conservation practice
Software used: Conefor, Circuitscape, R, QGIS and ArcGIS
Presented works in two lab presentation (success) and undergraduate biology thesis presentation (cancelled due to Covid-19)

Freshwater Ecosystems

Changes in Erythemis simplicicollis foraging behaviour and growth rates in response to salt pollution
Apr 2019 – Aug 2019

Biology Research opportunity program; Dr Shannon McCauley
Examined the effects of sub-lethal salinity on the dragonfly, Erythemis Simplicollis in 30 mesocosms
Focused on 2 aspects of performance: foraging behavior (93 individual) and growth rate (300 individual)
Significant decrease of foraging behavior when exposed to high salinity level but no significant difference in growth rate aspect
Analyzed the differences through linear mix model and growth rate in R
