    STKO at GIScience 2016

    GIScience 2016 gave STKO Lab an opportunity for an "STKO Reunion Event"! STKO alumnus, Dr. Ben Adams, Dr. Grant McKenzie, and Dr. Yingjie Hu got together with current STKO students. Spatial Data on the Web workshop has been successfully held with the help of all STKO members! Every member had a great time in GIScience 2016 and enjoyed "Jano's smiling face" a lot. :-)


    Yingjie Hu and Song Gao were awarded National Scholarships

    Big Congrats to both Yingjie Hu and Song Gao, who were awarded the "2015 National Award for Outstanding Chinese PhD Students Study Abroad" from China Government Scholarship Council (CSC). Only three UCSB students (and yes, two of three are from UCSB Geography STKO Lab!) got this award this year and no more than 500 young talents with remarkable academic achievements across multidisciplinary domains received this award all over the world.
