On 1 September Mohamed Ibrahim took up his new position as lecturer in Spatial Data Science at the University of Leeds, affiliated with Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy and Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA).
During his time with us, Mohamed has worked on video data from people in open spaces and on buses and Transport for London (TfL) data. By reducing this data to its informative minimum, his work has helped answer questions about how often people touch their faces (COVID-19) and how individuals are spaced on the streets. His work also allows one to simply quantify the motion of vehicles as they move around traffic junctions monitored by TfL. He is currently using this data to model the presence of NO2 in London. He has also developed lightweight methods for detecting anomalies (such as fire) in video data.
We thank Mohamed for his contribution and wish him well in his new role. We're excited that Mohamed intends to continue his strong collaboration with our team.
