James' research interests lie in spatio-temporal modelling and analytics, in particular applications of machine learning, deep learning and computer vision to the geoinformation sciences. He has carried out most of his work in the fields of transport and mobility, with applications in travel time forecasting, travel mode and activity detection, and bicycle flow modelling. His current work focuses on using computer vision to sense features of the urban environment for applications including road safety and context detection.
James Haworth is a lecturer in spatio-temporal analytics at SpaceTimeLab in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering. Before coming to UCL, James studied Geography at the University of Leeds, where he focussed on geodemographics and retail geography. He obtained his MSc in Geographic Information Science from UCL in 2009, before embarking on his PhD study as part of the EPSRC funded STANDARD project (Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Network Data and Route Dynamics, EPSRC: EP/G023212/1).
After completing his PhD, James worked as a teaching fellow at CEGE and as research associate on the Crime, Policing and Citizenship (CPC) project (EPSRC: EP/J004197/1), before taking up his lectureship in 2014.
