Research overview

Main research interests: quantitative spatial analysis, geography of crime, agent-based modelling, social-media data.

Dr Malleson is an Associate Profressor in Geographical Information Science and a member of the Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy (CSAP). His primary research interest is in developing spatial computer models of social phenomena with a particular focus on crime simulation.

Other main research interests include looking at how the spatial analysis (clustering methods, spatial statistics etc) of new forms of social data can influence research. We are currently exploring how geo-located Twitter data can be used to learn about social systems.
