Robin Lovelace

Robin Lovelace is an environmental geographer previously based in Bristol (BSc, Geography), Salamanca (for an Erasmus year), York (MSc, Environmental Science) and most recently Sheffield. At Sheffield I worked for the EPSRC funded E-Futures Doctoral Training Centre and undertook a PhD entitled “The energy costs of commuting: a spatial microsimulation approach”.

I started work in Leeds as a Research Fellow as part of the Talisman node of the Nationaly Centre for Research Methods in summer 2013. My role in Talisman is to apply spatial microsimulation and related methods to problems of transport and agent-based modelling and to explore various techniques for visualisation and applied analysis, with a particular interest in transport policy. I aim to harness my research for the greater good.

I am an advocate of free and open source software for geography and believe these tools have the capacity to move geography away from the stuffy confines of academia and into the wild. Specifically I have expertise in the following areas:
