Xiang Chen


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Connecticut, USA. I received a Ph.D. in Geography at The Ohio State University. My research interests are focused on GIScience, community health, and urban studies. I employ GIS instruments (e.g., big data analytics, geovisualization, deep learning) and accessibility theory to unveil the socioeconomic and health inequalities across urban communities. I also have research interests in transportation and remote sensing. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I am heavily involved in various public health research, including mapping, modeling, and projecting cases of infection, discussing socioeconomic impacts on tourism, and exploring the health inequity in food procurement.
