Harry Gibson

Geospatial Data Scientist (Environmental Health)

I am a GIS specialist, developer and data scientist, working in Prof Kazem Rahimi's group, in particular on the Informal Cities programme.

Prior to joining NDWRH, for the last six years I have been working in the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) at Oxford, which was initially based in Zoology and then at the Big Data Institute. In this role I was responsible for the processing of MAP's large global satellite data archives and on the analyis of these and other spatial data.

Before joining Oxford, I worked in the environmental management sector, developing spatial aspects of flood risk modelling and hydrological monitoring in the UK. I read Natural Sciences (BSc), with a PhD in Environmental Geosciences, both at Durham University. I'm a volunteer with the disaster response charity MapAction, where I contribute to the development of the software tools that support our emergency field mapping work.
