Simone Caschili, enviromental engineer, received his Ph.D. in Ingegneria del Territorio (Land Engineering and Urban Planning) at University of Cagliari (IT) in February 2010. His thesis (Complex Networks and Spatial Analysis: an Integrated Approach for Community Detection) explores the linkages between Complex Network Theory and Spatial Planning proposing a contribution to the issue of “regionalization”. His research interests are the modelling of urban and regional systems as complex networks, the inclusion of time-space features in network modelling and policy evaluation for planning in both urban and environmental governance. He developed the GIS tool ComplexNetGIS, an ArcGIS® integrated tool. It provides several http://essayonlinewriter.com/ network functions and indices taken from Complex Network Theory and transport analysis.
Since 2007 he has been a teaching assistant for the Spatial Planning course at the Faculty of Engineering in Cagliari.
From August 2006 to September 2010 he worked as a consultant at the Urban Planning Office of the Autonomous Administration of Sardinia and supported the maintenance of the regional landscape plan.
Since Octobre 2010 he has been appointed at Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis– University College London – as Research Associate for the ENFOLD-ing Project. He is in charge of the trade and economic development work stream where he directs his http://essayonlinewriter.com/article-writing/ research interests (under the supervision of Francesca Medda and Alan Wilson) on the application of Complexity theory and Complex Adaptive Systems to the study of international trade and maritime shipping. A substantial part of his research interest regards real time data acquisition, data manipulation and visualisation.
Since November 2010 he is a senior research fellow at the UCL QASER Lab
