Ruixin Yang is an Associate Professor of the Department of Geography and Geoinformation Science in the College of Science at George Mason University. His research areas range from fluid dynamics, to astrophysics and general relativity, to data sciences, and then to data information systems, data analysis, and earth systems science. In recent years, he led a software developer team in developing several prototypes for Geoinformation systems for supporting online data search, access, and analysis. His current research interest includes Earth system science, and advanced data analysis techniques, data mining for intensity prediction of tropical cyclones, and governmental agriculture data integration and analysis. He has been the PI for several projects sponsored by the USDA on commodity data processing and integration, farm income and wealth data and model support, dissemination of global food security and model, etc. He has helped to organize the past Agro-Geoinformatics conferences and was co-PI for NIFA support of Agro-Geoinformatics 2017, 2018.
Dr. Yang is also the Graduate Coordinator for the GGS Department.
