Self Introduction

 

Education, employment and selected honors

Chen Yanguang [English name: Yanguang Chen] is a professor at College of Urban and Environmental Sciences, Peking University (PKU), Beijing, China. He received his BA degree from Central China Normal University in 1987, his Master’s degree in Northeast Normal University in 1995 and his PhD degree from Peking University in 2004. He is currently the teacher of “Mathematical Methods in Geography” for graduate students, and the teacher of “Quantitative Geography” as well as “Systems Engineering of Urban Planning for undergraduate students of PKU. He once won Baogang Education Prize of Graduate Students in 1994 and the title of Exemplary Backbone of Young Teachers of Henan Province in 1998. He won Wu-Chuanjun Prize for excellent papers in 2008 and the ICBC Prize as an excellent teacher of PKU in 2011. He and his co-workers won the second prize of Land and Resources Science and Technology Award of China in 2015 (No. 3), and won the first prize of Construction Science and Technology Award of China in 2018 (No. 2). He was elected member of Academic Council of the Geographical Society of China (GSC) (2005-2009), and member of Committee on Geographic Model and Geographic Information Analysis in Chinese Geographic Society (2018-2022). He was also accepted as a member of Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling, International Cartographic Association (ICA). He published over 8 books in Chinese and more than 240 articles in peer-reviewed China’s and international journals (including more than 180 papers in Chinese and 60 papers in English). He is now studying the integrated theory of geographical fractals, urban allometric scaling, self-similar hierarchy, self-organized network of cities, symmetry/asymmetry of geographical systems, and scale-free spatial computation and geo-information analysis.
