What’s New in the GIS Laboratory

The GIS Lab Welcomes New Director, Dr. Yun Zaho

In August 2018 Dr. Yun Zhao started his job as the GIS Lab Director and Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Department at UIS. Using geospatial techniques such as GIS and remote sensing, Yun’s current research primarily focuses on the complexity of urban form and its implications on various environmental and socioeconomic applications, including landscape ecology and transportation sustainability. Yun is thrilled to be part of the multidisciplinary team at UIS and is eager to explore the many opportunities the GIS lab can contribute to the communities at UIS and in Springfield.
