Yue was a research associate in CSIS on the NSF project that explores complex dynamics of telecoupled human and natural systems. Having been fascinated by the complexity of coupled human-natural systems since her senior year in undergrad, Yue accumulated 10+ years of experience in GIS and RS applications, land use models (particularly CLUE-S and ABM), and sustainability.
She is constructing an agent-based model to represent the soybean trade between Brazil and China, which will serve as a tool to help us understand and analyze telecoupling interactions and their impacts on sustainability.
During her PhD project, Yue investigated the resilience of vulnerable communities in less-developed areas (i.e., the Caboclo communities in the Brazilian Amazon delta) by quantitative methods and agent-based modeling. Besides research, Yue lectured Principles of GIS science, a major undergrad course in the University of Waterloo.
