As large volumes of data become increasingly available, new opportunities arise to harness their potential for urban studies. Data visualization is vital for this purpose, particularly in tackling fuzzy problems that require an explorative process of discovery to re-frame. This research investigates how data visualization can be used to harness big data for domain specific challenges in urban studies. To address this question, I demonstrate ...

Modelling street-level urban sunlight and greenery for healthcare and mobility studies. Ghent University
Urban sunlight and greenery are critical aspects that significantly affect humansU+2019 quality of life. However, methods for fine-grained spatial-temporal modelling of such information are still missing. We aim to propose methods for modelling street-level urban sunlight and greenery, making use of Streetview images, 3D city models, POI data, and weather data. Applications in healthcare and mobility studies will be explored.

Towards an explanation for urban vitality in times of crisis. A study on the impact of economic integration and intra-regional migration on the urban character in Late Roman Africa. Ghent University
The Late Roman 'success story' of urbanization in Africa Proconsularis, Byzacena, Numidia and Tripolitania has largely been established through generalizations of individual case studies. Wide studies of urban development that actually explain this development hardly carried out and that have been, did not venture beyond a certain time frame (the Principate, i.e. the first three centuries after Christ, or the late Roman period). This research ...
