Biography

Biography

I am a spatial data scientist working in the nexus between spatial data informatics, health and the environment. My research focusses on the over-arching theme of individual level spatial data. This can mean working with point-pattern data (often residential location) to reveal epidemiological relationships to environmental exposures or patterns in road traffic accidents; building whole life-course exposures to social and environmental sources to, for example, understand wellbeing in urban areas; data mining ‘Big Data’ such as twitter feeds and sensors for spatial-temporal trends; working in the Future Cities agenda, sensing and tracking individuals through GPS and environmental and social sensors in smart-phones; or writing on the sensitive issues (and exciting possibilities) surrounding tracking individuals and their rights to privacy and confidentiality.

My research career is naturally evolving more into a leadership role. I have considerable centre, programme and project management experience, from winning and running large EU consortium grants, to my other role as Director, BERTHA – Denmark’s Big Data Centre for Environment and Health, managing and coordinating some 30 researchers.


Qualifications
