Congratulations to Dr Azadeh Izadi: PhD Success

Congratulations to Azadeh Izadi for passing her PhD without emendations. Azadeh’s thesis was on Modelling of Topological Relations in Multidimensional Space. Research Description My research examines spatial knowledge representation and reasoning with applications in multi-dimensional Geographic Information System ‎‎(GIS). The development and widespread application of GIS have increased demand for a more accurate analysis andContinue reading “Congratulations to Dr Azadeh Izadi: PhD Success”

PhD Scholarship in Geographic Information Retrieval/Machine Learning for Disaster Applications

We invite applications for a PhD scholarship addressing the topic of extraction of disaster impacts from text-based social media sources; integrating the text data with sensor data and conventional geographic data sets using multi-modal data fusion and explore the use of this data in a question-answering system to support earthquake response.

Two Funded PhD Scholarships in Machine Learning and Geospatial Science Available

We have two funded PhD scholarships available on the BioWhere project. PhD 1 will focus on the development of methods to parse natural language text and will then use a range of machine/deep learning methods to georeference location descriptions from biological collections, including those held by Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research. A strong technical (computerContinue reading “Two Funded PhD Scholarships in Machine Learning and Geospatial Science Available”

Congratulations to Yasir on passing his PhD examination

Congratulations to Syed Yasir Imtiaz in passing his PhD examination. In his project, Yasir designed and developed a Knowledge-Centered Decision Support System (KCDSS) using a computer-based impact assessment framework to assess the functionality of Critical Infrastructure (CI) networks by modelling their interdependencies. More details on Yasir’s work can be found here. Congratulations Yasir!
