Professor Clive Sabel, Chair in Quantitative Geography, University of Bristol 

Area of research: Quantitative Social & Health Geography

The over-arching theme of his work is working with individual level data. This can mean working with point-pattern data (often residential location) to reveal epidemiological relationships to environmental exposures; building whole life-course exposures to social and environmental sources to, for example, understand wellbeing in urban areas; or data mining ‘Big Data’ such as twitter feeds for spatial-temporal trends.

 

Abstract:

The seminar will outline spatial and temporal approaches to unpacking the ‘Exposome’, primarily taking health impacts of air pollution as examples. A variety of personal sensors, technologies and theoretical concepts will be discussed to bring personal sampling, GPS, GIS, social media and Big Data together to reveal pattern from messy, complex data.

Summary:

The over-arching theme of his work is working with individual level data. This can mean working with point-pattern data (often residential location) to reveal epidemiological relationships to environmental exposures; building whole life-course exposures to social and environmental sources to, for example, understand wellbeing in urban areas; or data mining ‘Big Data’ such as twitter feeds for spatial-temporal trends.
