We have an excellent MSc in the emerging area of Geographic Data Science and is accepting applications. We have an e-brochure, and you can click here to get an overview of the course or find out how to apply.
I am a Professor of Geographic Information Science at the University of Liverpool and Deputy Director of the ESRC Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC). Prior to this I worked at University College London as a researcher and is also where I completed my PhD. In a general sense my research is concerned with how the complexities of individual behaviours manifest spatially and can be represented and understood though a framework of geographic data science.
In particular, this research has extended a tradition of area classification and I have developed a broad critique of the ways in which geodemographic methods can be refined through modern scientific approaches to data mining, geographic information science and quantitative human geography. I am an avid R user, and also advocate of Open Geographic Information Science.
