SpaceTimeLab welcomes new members

Publication date:

SpaceTimeLab is excited to announce the appointment of five new members of staff, and 2 new research students. Sarah Wise, Chris Gale and Toby Davies will take up postdoctoral positions on the Crime, Policing and Citizenship (CPC) project, along with current SpaceTimeLab member James Haworth. Khaled Taalab, formerly of Cranfield University, joins the EU FP7 funded project INFRARISK: Novel Indicators for Risk Assessment of Critical Infrastructure.

Congratulations to Berk Anbaroglu and Ed Manley

Publication date:

Many congratulations to SpaceTimeLab members Berk Anbaroglu and Ed Manley, who both recently defended their PhD theses. Berk's thesis, entitled Spatio-temporal Clustering for Non-recurrent Traffic Congestion Detection on Urban Road Networks, was very well received. Berk now returns to his native Turkey to take up a position at Hacettepe University. Ed's thesis, entitled Modelling Driver Behaviour to Predict Urban Road Traffic Dynamics was equally successful, and his work at SpaceTimeLab has earned him a role as research associate at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at UCL.

SpaceTimeLab at Geocomputation 2013

Publication date:

Two members of SpaceTimeLab travelled to Wuhan, China for the International Conference on Geocomputation, 23rd-25th May. Ed Manley presented his research on Markov Chain Topological Route Selection, and James Haworth talked about methods for Improving Forecasting on Sparse Spatial Networks Under Missing Data. Prof. Tao Cheng and Monsuru Adepeju also had their abstract accepted, entitled Detecting Emerging Space-Time Crime Patterns by Prospective STSS, which was presented by James in their absence. All of the talks were very well received and encouraged lively debate. You can view the presentations at the links below.

SpaceTimeLab collaborator Prof. Paul Longley was also in Wuhan to give a keynote speech entitled Geocomputation and Socioeconomic Data Structures.
