We design computational tools and policy interventions using spatial data science, complex systems analysis and participatory design approaches to understand the processes of urbanisation in cities.
We use multiple computational and qualitative approaches, and often with scholars from other disciplines, to develop insight into theories and practices of urban science and policy around the world.
We focus on how data-driven modelling techniques provide support to decisionmakers in understanding complex issues of urbanisation through a lens of equity and social justice.
