Fields of Study

Areas of Interest

GIScience, spatial analysis, and big data; Health geography and environmental health; Time geography and human mobility.


Wang’s research interests include health geography, environmental health, human mobility, GIScience, big data, and spatial analysis. His recent research has included exploration of methodological issues in environmental health studies (e.g., uncertain geographic context problem and spatial non-stationarity), development of a unified analytical framework for environmental context profiling and individual exposure assessment, and examination of adult participation in high-risk drug use and of environmental influences on physical activity.
