My previous work involved spatial mobility – using computational methods to derive insights from raw data in order to understand human behaviour.

My current interests lay in understanding the relationship between data, information and knowledge. I am interested in exploring how can we configure technology to serve the needs of the citizens and how to provide people the tools to reclaim the ownership of their data.

All of this combines studies of sensor networks (IoT), personal informatics, urban science and data visualisation.
