Architecture, Computing and Engineering (ACE)

Allan Brimicombe is Professor of Geo-Information at the University of East London.  He is a Chartered Geographer, a Fellow of the Royal Statistical, Royal Geographical and Geological Societies, a Director of the British Society of Criminology, and is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences. Allan pioneered the use of geo-information systems and environmental simulation modelling. His other research interests include data quality issues, spatial data mining and analysis, predictive analytics and location-based services (LBS). These have been applied to crime, health, education, natural hazards, utilities and business. He lectures in research methods and data science. Allan is a non-executive member of the National Statistician’s Crime Statistics Advisory Committee which advises on all matters relating to the collection, publication of and public trust in crime statistics. He has also been a Specialist Advisor to the House of Lords. More information can be found at: https://www.uel.ac.uk/geo-information/ 

    Allan's expertise focuses around cross-disciplinary applications of Geo-Information Science and Data Science.


    Overview




    Allan is the Head of the Centre for Geo-Information Studies.
