Measuring response to public guidance during incidents of wildfires or major storms.
Category: Urban Health
Project Description & Overview
Study to develop models which describe the observed large-scale response by pedestrian/traffic during recent natural disasters in North America. This research topic will involve the application of data science and spatial modelling techniques to high-volume mobile phone movement data to understand evacuation patterns. This will potentially inform a macro-wildfire evacuation simulation model (WUINITY2).
