Xiaozhe has been working at the Institute of Geographic Sciences and Natural Resources Research with the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research focus has been the optimal location of earthquake emergency shelters, as the building of emergency shelters is an effective way to reduce earthquake disaster risks and protect lives. She has been studying carbon emissions in China and whether the two-child policy launched by the Chinese government has any effect on long-term carbon emissions.
In the Population, Health and Place program, she would like to examine GIS applications in environmental surveillance and management, urban and rural environment protection planning, and environmental emergency systems, and the use of place and spatial information to study public health, including how GIS can help to understand and predict the dynamics of disease and GIS applications in epidemiological studies, which covers a range of opportunities including responses to public health emergencies and the analysis of pollution related disease causes, interventions, and outcomes.
