I am Professor in Geographic Data Science at the Department of Geography and Planning of the University of Liverpool (UK), and Deputy Programme Director for Urban Analytics at the Alan Turing Institute , where I was also ESRC Fellow from 2020 to 2023. At Liverpool, I am a member of the Geographic Data Science Lab.

I am part of the development team of the open source library PySAL for spatial analysis in Python; and created contextily, a small Python package to use web tile services in static maps.

Since 2019, I am co-editor of "Environment and Planning B - Urban Analytics and City Science". Since 2023, together with Rachel Franklin and Levi Wolf, I co-host the GLaD Podcast.
