Event description

Description

The Leeds Institute for Data Analytics is please to present the next seminar in our series showcasing data analytics.

Our keynote speaker for this seminar is Dr Toby Davies , a lecturer in the Department of Security and Crime at UCL. His background is in mathematics, and his research is concerned with the application of quantitative methods to the modelling and analysis of crime. He has particular interest in the spatio-temporal characteristics of crime, and the modelling of these towards the end goal of crime prediction. In addition, his research involves the application of network science in the context of crime.

We also have talks from Dr Monsuru Adepeju and Dr Matthew Daws.

The seminar will be Chaired by Dr Nick Malleson. Dr Malleson is an Associate Professor in Geographical
Information Science in the Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy at the School of Geography, University of Leeds. He has a PhD in Geography and undergraduate degrees in Computer Science (BSc) and Informatics (MSc). His main research interest are in developing spatial computer models of social phenomena, with a
particular focus on crime simulation. Recently he has also become interested in how ‘Big’ data can be used to learn about the movement and behaviour of people in cities.”

Agenda

15:30-15:50: Dr Monsuru Adepeju - Improving crime interventions using proactive hotspot policing

https://www.geog.leeds.ac.uk/people/m.adepeju

Monsuru is a research fellow and currently working on a Home Office project, “More with Less: Authentic Implementation of Evidence-Based Predictive Patrol Plans”. His current research interests cover predictive policing, geo-statistics and application of GIS to social-economic areas such as crime and health.


15:50-16:25: Dr Matthew Daws - Reproducible research: assessing spatial predictions of crime

https://www.geog.leeds.ac.uk/people/m.daws

Matt Daws is a research fellow in geography, working on a Home Office funded project, "Doing more with less". He previously worked as a Java developer in the financial sector, and in a previous life was an academic mathematician. He is interested in computational aspects of spatial analysis, and in Bayesian approaches to modelling.


16:25-17:00 : Dr Toby Davies - Developments and challenges in crime prediction

Toby Davies is a lecturer in the Department of Security & Crime Science at UCL. His background is in mathematics, and his research is concerned with the application of quantitative methods to the modelling and analysis of crime. He has particular interest in the spatio-temporal characteristics of crime, and the modelling of these towards the end goal of crime prediction. In addition, his research involves the
