Graduate study opportunities
  • We seek prospective graduate students who will actively conduct interdisciplinary research in our lab.  
  • Applicants, who should be Bachelor's or Master's degree holders in Geoinformatic Engineering, Earth Science, Geography, Statistics, Computer Science/Engineering, or related fields, are expected to have experiences in GIS and remote sensing data processing, and/or computer programming skills.
  • Regardless of their majors, all applicants should be self-motivated and have a positive attitude towards a voyage of scientific/engineering investigation. They should keep in mind the Confucius(孔子)'s famous aphorism "They who know the truth are not equal to those who love it, and they who love it are not equal to those who delight in it (知之者 不如好之者 好之者 不如樂之者)". If you only want to research along the well-trodden paths, please don't apply.
  • Prospective topics are (but not limited to) the followings :
    • Geostatistics research  
      • Spatio-temporal downscaling of coarse scale thematic information using geostatistics and auxiliary fine scale data
      • Development of multivariate space-time simulation algorithms
      • Development of multi-scale geostatistical models for generating environmental thematic maps and its effects on physical model outputs
      • Geostatistical integration of multi-scale/temporal spatial data for medical geoinformatics
    • Data fusion & remote sensing research  
      • Land-cover classification and change detection using advanced machine learning algorithms
      • Natural disaster risk analysis using multi-temporal remote sensing data, multi-source spatial data, cost model, and statistical/machine learning prediction models 
  • For more information, please contact Prof. Park (nwpark at or visit his office (4-311).
