Speaker information

Dr Martin Zaltz Austwick, Lecturer, UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis

We live in an era of abundant data, and more data is being opened up to the world every day. More and more of us are handing over detailed personal and location data via social media and smartphones. How can researchers use this data to model and understand the way our cities and societies work? What do physics and maths have to offer? And how can we use this data to improve people’s lives?
