Dr. Bumseok Chun PhD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University.
His research focuses on developing practically preventive intervention based on advanced scientific understanding of the environmental determinants by geospatial and statistical modeling. It also includes UHI modeling and analysis, urban climate change management, and 3-D environmental simulation. For the area of urban climate, he is currently working on GIS-based UHI analysis to resolve diverse environmental problems based on the relationships between three dimensional urban form and LST (land surface temperature) in the micro scale. Prior to joining at this place, he was a post-doctoral researcher in Center for Geographic Information Systems and a research scientist in Urban Climate Lab at Georgia Institute of Technology. He received his PhD from City and Regional Planning and MS from Civil, Environmental and Geodetic Engineering at The Ohio State University.
