Research topic: Machine learning methods for Urban Flows: spatial effects in Origin- Destinations
My research looks at different forms of urban flows, such as Intra-national Migration or patients flows within City of Bristol, and explores the ways we try to predict them. This includes review of methodologies that has been developed in past, but mainly explores the suitability of Machine Learning algorithms for flow prediction. Most importantly, the focus of the research is on the spatial effects we observe in urban flow data, which are the main feature of the urban flows. Predicting human flows can be beneficial in wide range of fields, transport, urban planning and even health care.
