Extreme Citizen Science (ExCiteS)


Zhiwei Cao

Zhiwei studied his PhD in the department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering at University College London from 2008 to 2013. He is interested in GIS modelling, GIS computation, and spatial analysis.

His research was the development of Combinative Geo-processing approach. The primary objective of Combinative Geo-processing approach is to reduce the influence of data uncertainties of traditional geo-processing that are caused by error propagation due to processing of geographic information.

He is working on his PhD thesis at the moment (expected to finish in June 2013). He currently is employed as Teaching Fellow (part time position) in UCL, and the main responsibilities are to develop, deliver and organize the GIS courses, (e.g. Environmental Modelling and Wind Farm Location Analysis), in Department of Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering, UCL.
