Ed is Lecturer and Data Scientist at UCL CASA. Ed’s background lies in the application of computational techniques to interdisciplinary domains, with a particular focus on urban systems. Ed completed his Engineering Doctorate at UCL entitled ‘Modelling Spatial Cognition to Predict Urban Road Traffic Dynamics’, where he developed a large-scale agent-based model for the simulation of urban road traffic patterns. Using a large dataset of observed route selections, Ed identified new patterns in route selection behaviour within the London region, building on conventional findings in spatial cognition research.
Deputy Director of UCL Transport Institute, Dept of Civil, Environ &Geomatic Eng, Faculty of Engineering Science. Tom is interested in all aspects of transport but is particularly interested in citizen participation in the planning of transport. This is connected with interests in policy decision-making and policy implementation. Other interests are the design and functioning of the public realm and policies relating to cycling and other low-carbon modes.
