Digital Geography Lab aims at understanding society through interactions between people, and between people and their environment, from a geographical perspective. Much of our work uses people’s mobility and physical accessibility as an indicator of these interactions.
Our work contributes to a wide range of research from urban geography, land use and transport planning to sustainability and conservation science. Methodologically, we are experts in mining and analysing spatial data, ranging from user-generated Mobile Big Data to more traditional data sources. We develop spatial analysis frameworks and combine them with machine learning. We pay special attention to ethical and privacy issues.
As a researcher community, we strive for creativity, critical thinking and mutual respect. We are forerunners in open science, publishing tools and data openly whenever possible. We actively share our knowledge through high quality teaching and science communication.
