Yue Ma

Graduate Student


I received my B.S. in Geographical Information Science and B.Ec. in Finance from Wuhan University in 2020. I was also a visiting student at the University of St Andrews in 2019. Then I received my M.S. in Geographical Information Science from The State University of New York at Buffalo in 2023. During my master’s, I was a research assistant in the GeoAI lab at the University at Buffalo. I joined the GLAD lab in 2023 as a Ph.D. student. My research interests include machine learning, deep learning, high-performance computing, remote sensing, and large-scale energy land use land cover change.
