Biography

I am currently Professor of Geocomputation, and Director of the National Centre for Geocomputation at Maynooth University. Prior to this I was Professor of Human Geography at the University of Liverpool in the UK, and before this I worked in the Universities of Leicester, Glamorgan and Newcastle, all in the UK. I have degrees from Durham University (BSc Mathematics) and Newcastle University (MSc Medical Statistics, PhD in Geography).
