Dr Mohamed R. Ibrahim
I am currently a lecturer in Spatial Data Science at the University of Leeds, affiliated with Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy and Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA).
Prior to joining Leeds, I was a postdoctoral research associate in Human Mobility at the Alan Turing Institute. I am also the creator and founder of URBAN-i and the AI-embedded camera, called URBAN-i Box.
I conducted my PhD at University College London (UCL) at SpaceTime Lab in Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering; my research focused on building a computer vision system for detecting and analysing critical events in cities. I am trained as an architect with BSc in Architectural Engineering and MSc in Urban Development.
My research interests include using deep learning and computer vision to advance current urban modelling methods.
I specialise in using machine vision to analyse the built environment, human mobility, and behaviour in cities. I am is also interested in developing AI-powered integrated hardware that can be deployed directly in cities.
My research findings have been published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals, including urban studies, transportation studies, and computer science.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
