I am a geographer using spatial data science to solve real-world problems, improve our cities, transportation systems and teach the new generation.
The core focus of my research is on spatial data science and the development of new spatiotemporal modelling techniques to address problems of a geographical nature using big data (e.g., location-based services, transactional records, social media, and GPS tracking). These datasets can be used to study patterns of individual behaviour, which when combined with other sources of data (i.e., data fusion), can lead to a fuller understanding of the dynamics of human activity at the population level, particularly in urban areas. Most interestingly, investigating the dynamics of human activities also allows deepening the comprehension of modern global concerns, such as climate changes, pandemics, traffic intensity, human mobility and accessibility to services, natural hazards and migration, and spatial inequalities.
