Personal profile

My research interests:

  • Geoprivacy & Spatial Confidentiality – PhD work relates to confidential point data. Currently looking at guidelines Vs inference attacks for participatory sensing and geosocial network data.  
  • Urban Safety - exploiting human-centric collective sensing data to understand, model, and predict urban safety.
  • Spatial Crime Analysis – with research stays at Department of Crime Science and Security (UCL - UK) and Department of Criminology (Temple University - US)
  • Fear of Crime – using social media data to sense people’s concerns about crime events by looking at the effects of the crime characteristics, location, and time.
  • Dynamic Population Models- based on areal interpolation techniques and uses geosocial network data as ancillary 0D data. A significant co-variate to study: crime, health, transportation.
