DuncanASmith_bw2My name’s Duncan Smith, and I’m a researcher specialising in urban geography, GIS, visualisation, city modelling and sustainable travel. I’m employed at Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London. CASA is a multi-disciplinary centre including city research, modelling and smart city applications, and my current research project is called MECHANICITY, investigating relationships between urban size and performance. Before this current post, I also completed my PhD at CASA supervised by Prof Mike Batty and Dr Andy Hudson-Smith. The PhD investigated the changing physical and economic structure of the London region, and its relationship with urban sustainability (read more here).

In addition to UCL, I have also worked for LSE Cities, an international urban research centre at London School of Economics, the Greater London Authority, and in transportation research consultancy.

City Geographics showcases current projects, publications and research ideas related to urban form, dynamics and sustainability. Feel free to contact me about the work shown here and any potential projects and research collaborations.
