Collaborators and Partners

We are an inter/multi-disciplinary team with background and expertise in mathematics, geography, urban planning, statistics and data science, geomatics, computer science, economics, physics, population and demography, medical science, and sociology. We work very closely with our collaborators and partners both in academia, industry, NGOs and serve policymakers and government with our impactful research. 

Our research has been generously supported by several funding bodies, including UK Research and Innovation, Royal Society, and the European Research Council, and by our industrial partners, including Ordnance Survey GB, Alan Turing Institute, Dstl, UBER, Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and RegionalDevelopment (IOER), and BIM Academy. We collaborate very closely with our academic network including University College London, the University of Cambridge, Oregon State University, Maynooth University, and many more. 

We welcome further collaborations through our visiting scholars and Internships schemes.
