I am Lecturer in Sustainability and Urban Data Science at the Edinburgh Future Institute and the Edinburgh School of Architecture and Lanscape Architecture of the University of Edinburgh.
My research sits at the intersection of Urban Planning, Geography and Computer Science and I am interested in developing new spatially informed computational methods to better understand the mutual relationship between human behaviours and their urban contexts. This work blends traditional and new forms of data to provide quantifiable evidence of urban dynamics and inform policy making. My current substantive focus concerns how we can equitability manage Net Zero transitions within cities.
Previously, I was a Post Doctoral Research Associate at the Geographic Data Science Lab of the University of Liverpool and I hold a PhD in Computer Science awarded jointly by the University of Torino and University of Luxembourg.
I have been member of the European Network Exploring Research into Geospatial Information Crowdsourcing software and methodologies for harnessing geographic information from the crowd ENERGIC.
