About Me

Hello I am Vincent! I am a PhD candidate at McGill University with the Department of Civil Engineering, starting from Jan, 2021. I work with Prof. Lijun Sun on spatiotemporal modeling and machine learning. I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Transportation Engineering from Central South University in 2017 and 2020. My master’s research was about human mobility and complex network.
