Portrait of Dr. Zhen LIU.

I am Dr. Yan Chen [陈岩], a member of the Institute of Applied Optimization [应用优化研究所] of the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology [计算机科学与技术系] of Hefei University [合肥学院]. Before joining the institute, I studied as a graduate student at China University of Mining and Technology [中国矿业大学] where I received my master's degree in 2014. In the same year, I won a scholarship funded by the China Scholarship Council (CSC) to support my doctoral study in Germany. I received my doctorate in spatial information management and modeling at the TU Dortmund (Technische Universität Dortmund) in Germany in 2019, where I was a member of the Spatial Information Management and Modelling Department of the School of Spatial Planning.

My research interests include hydrological modeling, Geographic Information System (GIS), Remote Sensing (RS), and Sponge City/Smart City applications.
