About the Author

NewScience1If you want my CV in colloquial style, then look at the CV page on this site. If you want the full version, you can download it from here. Since 1995 when I returned from the US where I was directed the National Center for Geographic Information & Analysis for 5 years at SUNY-Buffalo, I and my colleagues have been running the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at UCL which we set up in 1995 as a soft money outfit to do research into the sorts of things that appear on this web site. In fact we continue to have a strong presence in GIS but an emerging focus on land use transport models, and on smart cities.

Formally, I am a professor in the Bartlett School which is the Faculty of the Built Environment and University College London and I am Chair of CASA. This means I continue to do what I have always done, write grants, supervise the research, get the best PhDs we can, and preach the message of a science of cities. Here is my CV page where you can find some more about whence I hail from. I am also a visiting professor at ASU in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, and an honorary professor at Cardiff where I was Chair in the mid 1980s.
