Weichuan Dong is a Ph.D. candidate in geography at Kent State University and I also work as a health services research analyst at Case Western Reserve University. My research focuses on modeling features and processes of the earth surface with logical thinking and statistical approaches. I have great interests in spatiotemporal analysis of the environmental and socioeconomic phenomenon using geographic information systems (GIS), social networks, and data science as tools. My current project is about spatiotemporal analysis of the relationship between people and healthcare facilities, especially on patients' access to health facilities during different stages of disease and correlations with mortality.
