研究方向与社会贡献 (Research direction and social contribution)

徐博士的研究方向为生态城市、生态足迹、及地理设计。致力于推动生态足迹在建筑规划领域的应用——通过空间设计影响个人行为活动、降低城市生态足迹、促进全球可持续发展。主要途径是从 “社区”角度探索生态足迹,拓宽生态足迹的研究尺度,将当前的“国家-城市-个人”完善至 “国家-城市-社区-个人” 的新框架。目前正基于开源数据平台(Python, Google Earth Engine, OpenStreetMap等),构建并分析全球范围内的社区尺度生态足迹、碳足迹数据。

Dr. Xu’s research focuses on Ecocities, Ecological Footprint, and Geo-design. He is committed to Ecological Footprint’s application in the planning realm – DESIGN the built environment to shape individual behaviors, reduce urban ecological footprints, and foster planetary sustainability. His research agenda centers on the Ecological Footprints of “neighborhoods,” a scale gap within existing ecological footprint studies. The goal is to transition Ecological Footprint’s research scale from “nation-city-individual” to “nation-city-neighborhood-individual”. Dr. Xu is currently constructing and analyzing global ecological/carbon footprint datasets at the neighborhood scale, with Python and open-source data platforms such as Google Earth Engine and OpenStreetMap.
