Current projects :

  • 'More with Less': Assessing and Enabling Predictive Policing. This Home Office funded project looks to assess the uncertainty of predictive policing algorithms.
  • I spend much of my time with my students working on social and environmental modelling and data analytics. You can find out more about these projects on my research students webpage.

  • I'm also part of a project to build a "science-and-arts" public understanding of science development in a quarry in the Yorkshire Dales: see the Threshfield Quarry website.

  • I also invent new interfaces that allow people to interact with geographical and non-geographical data on computers/the web. These include, for example, "fuzzy" Geographical Information Systems that you can use to record "vernacular" geographical terms like "the mountain behind the village", or "down by the gasworks". These have been build into an interface that you can use on your own projects by colleagues at Leeds, Lancaster and Manchester: MapMe.
