Brown Bag Lecture • Geospatial Intelligence for Disaster Management

The UP CIDS Program on Data Science for Public Policy (DSPP) will host the brown bag lecture Geospatial Intelligence for Disaster Management by Dr. Leorey Marquez this Friday, February 7, 2020, 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., at the UP CIDS Conference Hall,  Lower Ground Floor, Ang Bahay ng Alumni, University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City.

About the Lecture

This Brown Bag Lecture will tackle how mathematical modelling, land-use transport environment modelling, and other simulations can help develop disaster management plans for the country.

About the Speaker

Leorey Marquez, Ph.D. is a Senior Research Scientist with the Digital Productivity Flagship at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s federal research agency. He has specialist expertise in mathematical modelling and land-use transport environment modelling and has developed numbers of software packages for such analysis, for example TOPAZ2000, LAIRDW, and STEAM (Spatial and Transport Emissions Assessment Module). Prior to joining the CSIRO in 1993, he lectured at the Department of Decision Sciences at the University of Hawaii for 6 years. He received degrees in Statistics and Operations Research from the University of the Philippines and a Ph.D. in Communications and Information Science from the University of Hawaii. His areas of research include land use-transport-environment modelling, network optimization, expert systems, and object-oriented analysis and design. He was responsible for modelling traffic congestion and population exposure to pollution in the BTRE-commissioned Study on GHG Abatement Measures for Urban Freight and also in the 1997 National Inquiry in Urban Air Quality. In 2015, Dr. Marquez was awarded a Balik-Scientist Grant to teach Simulation Modeling for Disaster Planning at the University of the Philippines College of Engineering.
