Congratulations to SpaceTimeLab researcher Juntao Lai, who was awarded the prize for best young researcher paper at GISRUK 2015. Juntao’s paper, entitled Spatio-Temporal Patterns of Passengers’ Interests at London Tube Stations, uses geo-tagged Tweets and topic modelling to explore how potential Tube passenger's interests vary spatially throughout the system.
