Alexander Michels is a research assistant at the CyberInfrastructure & Geospatial Information Laboratory (CIGI) and CyberGIS Center for Advanced Digital and Spatial Studies. His research is focused on CyberGIS; utilizing and developing high-performance and scalable software and cyberinfrastructure for advanced spatial analysis and modeling. He is currently a PhD student studying Spatial Informatics under Dr. Shaowen Wang at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). His work on reproducible computation in the geosciences lead to a redesign of CyberGISX and CyberGIS-Jupyter for Water (CJW) and his work on rapidly measuring spatial accessibility during the COVID-19 pandemic was deployed as part of the WhereCOVID-19 Spatial Accessibility Explorer.
|Oct 24, 2021||The CyberGIS Center is seeking papers and sessions for our AAG 2022 Symposium on Data-Intensive Geospatial Understanding in the Era of AI and CyberGIS. Consider submitting any work on spatial accessibility to our session Computation and Uncertainty of Spatial Accessibility.|
|Oct 22, 2021||Our work CyberGIS-Compute for Enabling Computationally Intensive Geospatial Research has been accepted as a tutorial at the 3rd ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on APIs and Libraries for Geospatial Data Science (SpatialAPI 2021).
