SELECTED FACULTY BIOGRAPHIES
DANIEL W. GOLDBERG, PHD
Dr. Daniel W. Goldberg is an Assistant Professor of Geography at Texas A&M University. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Rutgers University, and a Master of Science and Doctoral degree in Computer Science both from the University of Southern California. Dr. Goldberg’s work focuses on the research, design, and development of novel geospatial computational processes. He is particularly interested in investigating, representing, quantifying, and minimizing the sources of error and uncertainty in commonly used geospatial processes and data structures such as geocoding and gazetteers. He is a recipient of numerous geospatial intelligence scholarships and was the USC EDC Student of the Year in 2010. Dr. Goldberg is on the Board of Directors of the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS). He also serves as the Academic Councilor for the Association of American Geographers (AAG) GIS Specialty Group and Vice-Chair of the North American Association of Central Cancer Registries (NAACCR) GIS Committee.
TRACY A. HAMMOND, PHD
Dr. Tracy A. Hammond is a tenured Associate Professor of Computer Science & Engineering at Texas A&M University where she is also the Director of the TAMU Sketch Recognition Laboratory. Dr. Hammond holds four degrees from Columbia University (BS in Applied Mathematics, BA in Mathematics, MS in Computer Science, MA in Anthropology) as well as a PhD in Computer Science from The Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Hammond’s research attempts to answer the question: Can a computer recognize a human’s intention if we allow that human to interact naturally with the world? Her research thus far has made significant progress in this direction along three axes: Sketch recognition – enabling computers to understand freely-drawn hand-drawn sketches drawn by a human; Gesture recognition – enabling computers to understand hand gestures made by a human; New Devices/Modes of Human-Computer Interaction – building new modes and devices of interaction to better human-computer interaction. Dr. Hammond has published widely on these and other topics and is on the organizing committees of the leading conferences in her field including AAAI and IUI.
RAGHAVAN SRINIVASAN, PHD, PE
Dr. Raghavan Srinivasan is the Director of the Spatial Sciences Laboratory at Texas A&M University and a Professor in the Departments of Ecosystem Sciences and Management and Biological and Agricultural Engineering. Dr. Srinivasan is one of the developers of Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) and travels around the world teaching SWAT workshops. Dr. Srinivasan holds a BE Agricultural Engineering from TNAU (India), an MS in Agricultural Engineering from the Asian Institute of Technology (Bangkok), and a PhD in Agricultural Engineering from Purdue University. He is a recipient of the 2012 Norman Hudson Memorial Award from the World Association of Soil and Water Conservation for the development and world wide application of SWAT as well as the Texas A&M Vice Chancellor’s Award in Excellence in recognition of outstanding contributions and performance as a member of a research team.
WEI LI, PHD
Dr. Wei Li is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Texas A&M University, and an Assistant Research Scientist at Texas Transportation Institute. Dr. Li considers the importance of interdisciplinary scholarship in addressing the complex challenges facing contemporary cities. His research interests include the environmental and health impacts of transportation, economics of sustainable urbanism (particularly in the area of urban green infrastructure), and application of quantitative methods to urban planning. His work has been published in various journals, such as Urban Studies, Landscape and Urban Planning, and Transportation Research Record. Dr. Li received his PhD in Planning, Policy and Design from the University of California, Irvine, his MA in Planning from University of Waterloo, and his BBA from Renmin University of China. Dr. Li has received numerous awards for excellence in research, teaching, and service including the Social Ecology Alumni Fellowship and the Martha Newkirk Excellence in Research Award, both from UC Irvine.
ROBERT N COULSON, PHD
Dr. Robert N. Coulson is Professor of Entomology at Texas A&M University. He earned a BS degree in biology from Furman University, and MS and PhD degrees in entomology from the University of Georgia. Dr. Coulson’s research has been trans disciplinary in approach and directed towards investigating the activities and impacts of insects and other taxa in forest, prairie, savanna and agricultural landscapes. The research addresses issues of significance to ecological science as well as land-use management. He is co-founded the Knowledge Engineering Laboratory (KEL) to facilitate research and development of computer applications for planning, problem-solving and decision-making in environmental science and management. KEL research is directed to landscape-scale problems that require integration, interpretation, and use of different representations of knowledge. Special emphasis is placed on blending qualitative heuristic knowledge of experts with quantitative information that results from scientific investigations. Dr. Coulson teaches undergraduate courses in insect ecology and forest protection, a graduate course in landscape ecology and is co-author of the book 'Basic Landscape Ecology'.
