Postdoc in Modeling and Analysis of Urban Systems Using Big Data Created By Human Activity
Columbia University is looking for a postdoctoral researcher for a project aimed at the modeling and analysis of urban systems using big data created by human activity in the context of disaster risk management. This research fellowship is guaranteed for 1 year and renewable for a second year. At Columbia, we have a rich community of researchers investigating human-natural systems, and we believe the post-doc will find the community of scholars an inspiring one. The central research question is how to obtain and utilize big data on human mobility from smartphones, social media, and public transportation records as well as to associate human mobility with natural hazard data to make disaster planning data-driven. Other cities in the project are Tokyo and Taipei with teams from Japan and Taiwan as project partners.
