Steven Gray wins Provost Award for Public Engagement

26 January 2012


The Provost's Awards for Public Engagement have once again recognised the fantastic work that UCL's staff and students are doing to open up what happens at UCL, creating two-way conversations with the public.

This is the third year that the prizes have been awarded, reflecting commitment to public engagement from across UCL's disciplines.

The winner in the junior staff category was Steven Gray, from UCL's Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA).  Steve is a software researcher and developer with a focus on social media, web based mapping and ubiquitous computing.  Steve’s work on several projects across CASA, the Centre for Digital Humanities, and beyond, has centred on providing the public with software that gives them greater control over creating maps, surveys and museum interpretation.  He is also one of the instigators of the excellent Global Lab podcast alongside his colleague Martin Zaltz Austwick.
