Rob Kitchin is a professor and ERC Advanced Investigator in the National Institute of Regional and Spatial Analysis at Maynooth University, for which he was director between 2002 and 2013. After studying at Lancaster University (BSc Geography), Leicester University (MSc GIS), and the University of Wales Swansea (PhD Geography), he took up a post in Queen's University Belfast in 1996, moving to Maynooth University in 1998. He is currently a principal investigator on the Programmable  City project, the Digital Repository of Ireland, the All-Island Research Observatory and the Dublin Dashboard.

He has published widely across the social sciences, including 24 authored/edited books and over 160 articles and book chapters, and
has delivered over 180 invited talks at conferences and universities. He is managing editor of the international journal, Dialogues in Human Geography, and has been an editor of Progress in Human Geography and Social and Cultural Geography, and was the editor-in-chief of the 12 volume, International Encyclopedia of Human Geography.  He has successfully written or been a principal investigator on forty grants, totalling c.€36m, including funding from PRTLI 2, 4, 5, IRC, ERC, SFI, ESRC, NSF, Interreg and RIA.

He was the 2013 recipient of the Royal Irish Academy's Gold Medal for the Social Sciences, received the Association of American Geographers ‘Meridian Book Award’ for the outstanding book in the discipline in 2011,

Research Interests

Since completing my PhD in 1995 my research has spanned a number of interrelated domains that can broadly divided into overlapping clusters of projects and publications:

    Software, big data, smart cities
    The Internet and cyberspace
    Cartographic theory, mapping and dashboards
    Data infrastructures and practices
    Spatial theory and geographic methods
    The development of the discipline of  Geography
    Ireland: social geography, housing, spatial planning
    Diaspora strategies and migration
    Disability issues
    Cognitive mapping; relationship between Geography and Psychology  

I have been fortunate enough to have (co)written or been the principal investigator on 45 funded research projects, research infrastructure, and research centre/platform awards totalling c.€36 million from a range of funders, including the European Research Council (ERC, EU), Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences (IRCHSS, Ireland), Royal Irish Academy (RIA, Ireland), Higher Education Authority (HEA, Ireland), Science Foundation Ireland (SFI, Ireland), Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC, UK), National Science Foundation (NSF, USA), ESPON (Europe) and the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB, Europe).  

Current on-going funded research includes

The Programmable City (2013-2018).  Funded by the European Research Council, €2.31m (ERC-2012-AdG 323636-SOFTCITY); plus a supplemental SFI award of €300K. Project website 

Building City Dashboards: Addressing applied and fundamental issues (2016-2020). Funded by Science Foundation Ireland, €2.35m (15/IA/3090).  Co-PIs Chris Brunsdon, Martin Charlton, Co-Is Jeneen Naji and Gavin McArdle. 

Digital Repository of Ireland (2010-2015, on-going). Funded by the Programme for Research for Third Level Institutions, cycle 5, Higher Education Authority, €5.2m (MU share €1.42m). Partner institutions: MU, TCD, RIA, DIT, NUIG, NCAD. Project website
