Prof Clive Sabel
Clive is Professor in Environmental Geography, Department of Environmental Science, Aarhus University, Denmark. He is a spatial scientist working within the over-arching theme of individual level spatial data. This can mean working with point-pattern data (often residential location) to reveal epidemiological relationships to environmental exposures or patterns in road traffic accidents; building whole life-course exposures to social and environmental sources to, for example, understand wellbeing in urban areas (The Exposome); data mining ‘Big Data’ such as twitter feeds for spatial-temporal trends; working in the Future Cities agenda, sensing and tracking individuals through GPS and environmental and social sensors in smart-phones (the SenseAble Cities initiative); or writing on the sensitive issues (and exciting possibilities) surrounding tracking individuals and their rights to privacy and confidentiality.
