Welcome to Geohazards and Smart Sensing lab!


We are dedicated to investigating and mitigating natural hazards resulting from climate change and earthquakes and intelligently monitoring geo-structures, aiming to enhance the resilience of our infrastructure. We will also focus on utilizing remote sensing and AI to detect carbon emissions and seek effective solutions for carbon collection.


[Top news] The lab has two fully funded PhD positions available. Candidates can start as early as January 2024. If you are interested in working with Dr. Gong, please send him your CV, transcripts, and a brief statement explaining why you wish to pursue your PhD under his supervision. Thank you!

[2023-11-12] Dr. Gong is organizing a mini-symposium (MS 706), titled 'Natural Hazard Assessment with Monitoring, Modeling, and Uncertainty Quantification,' with Prof. Yichuan Zhu, and Prof. Hui Wang. The mini-symposium will be held at the upcoming Engineering Mechanics Institute Conference and Probabilistic Mechanics & Reliability Conference in Chicago, Illinois, on May 28-31, 2024. Abstracts of this mini-symposium are due on December 31, 2023. The abstract can be submitted through this link.

[2023-10-9] Dr. Gong was invited by Prof. Xiaoyu Song at the University of Florida to give a presentation entitled "A pseudo-3D methodology for predicting regional earthquake-induced landslides." Huge thanks to Xiaoyu's kind invitation and the audience's excellent questions.

[2023-8-1] This month, Dr. Gong will join the Department of Geosciences and Geological and Petroleum Engineering at Missouri University of Science and Technology as an Assistant Professor in Geological Engineering. This prestigious role offers an exceptional opportunity for him to contribute his expertise and passion to this esteemed institution.
