UCLA Grand Challenges Projects
In 2015-2017, I participated in a series of projects as a part of UCLA Grand Challenges. Our work focused on the sustainable goals of Los Angeles and conducted projects on
Mapping the biodiversity in Los Angeles and stressors to LA's ecological environment
Evaluating the determining factors for the participation in LA's turf replacement initiative for water conservation
Biodiversity Atlas for Los Angeles County
We adopted the latest 30-meter land cover/land use data from the National Land Cover Database by USGS, nighttime light data from DMSP-OLS and VIIRS, and LandScan gridded population to visualize human's impact on the biodiversity in Los Angeles County
Who's more likely to participate in LA's turf replacement rebate program?
We analyzed customer data of LA's turf replacement rebate program from 2015 to 2016 to make sense of what physical and socio-economic factors can better explain the different participation rate across neighborhoods.
