James Haworth is a lecturer in spatio-temporal analytics at SpaceTimeLab in the Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering. Before coming to UCL, James studied Geography at the University of Leeds, where he focussed on geodemographics and retail geography. He obtained his MSc in Geographic Information Science from UCL in 2009, before embarking on his PhD study as part of the EPSRC funded STANDARD project (Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Network Data and Route Dynamics, EPSRC: EP/G023212/1).
After completing his PhD, James worked as a teaching fellow at CEGE and as research associate on the Crime, Policing and Citizenship (CPC) project (EPSRC: EP/J004197/1), before taking up his lectureship. James’ main interests lie in the analysis, modelling and forecasting of spatio-temporal data using machine learning methods.
James contributes to two taught modules that form part of the MSc in Geographic Information Science in CEGE:
- CEGEG082: GIS Principles and Technology
- CEGEG076 : Spatio-temporal Data Mining
The technologies that he teaches include ArcGIS, Python programming language, and R statistical package.
