Assoc. Prof. Dr. Gudrun Wallentin

Head of the Spatial Simulation Research Group

Google Scholar profile ResearchGate profile
I am Associate Professor for Geoinformatics and Ecology at the Depatment of Geoinformatics – Z_GIS. I am Director of Studies of the UNIGIS MSc distance learning programme for GIScience & Systems and I lead the Spatial Simulation research group. My research interest is spatially-explicit simulation modelling of complex, ecological systems. My aim is to advance spatial simulation modelling methods, as well as to use these models to gain a better understanding of the behaviour of animals and the functioning of ecological systems.

Dr. Christian Neuwirth

Senior Researcher and Lecturer

 

I am lecturer in the UNIGIS distance-learning program, where I design and teach courses in geoinformatics and senior researcher in the Spatial Simulation research group. My research objective is to extend the application of modeling techniques beyond traditional boundaries. This includes the fusion of scientific modeling with gaming for system analysis and education as well as data-driven System Dynamics modeling. In my professional career as researcher and lecturer (Research Studio iSpace; University of Salzburg, Department of Geoinformatics; LMU Munich, Department of Geography) I gained experience in diverse fields such as natural hazard risk modeling, complex system simulation and sustainable resource management.

Dana Kaziyeva, MSc

Junior Researcher, GI Mobility Lab

My interests in the Geoinformatics field are related to transport modelling, using approaches from the Spatial Simulation domain. One example can be agent-based modelling of transport traffic simulation with its ability to emerge new patterns from behavior and individual choices of moving objects. In addition I am very enthusiastic about the development of web map applications with interesting contexts from social media and crowd-sourced data.

Francis Oloo, MSc

PhD student, Doctoral College “GIScience”

My research focus is on the integration of sensor and GPS tracking data into agent-based simulation models. In particular, I aim to bridge the gap between sensor data and knowledge generation from agent-based simulation models of environmental systems. Case studies include the navigation behavior of birds, collision risk between birds and wind farms, and human mobility characteristics in rural areas in Kenya through trajectories of motorcycle taxis. My further research interests are mapping of social vulnerability, renewable energy, and sustainable natural resources.

Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Stefan Mohr

UNIGIS M.Sc. Student

I am working as an IT project manager, being responsible for the integration of data, applications and processes. I am strongly interested in spatial simulation, which fits my personal needs to have systems and their complexity being visualized. Therefore I am looking for presenting spatio-temporal complex systems in some new ways by specializing and deepen my knowledge in programming models in GAMA. Combining ABMs with some Geology is another research interest of mine.

M.Sc. Student

Central to my focus and research interests are nature (e.g. ecology) and human wellbeing (e.g. planning habitats, agriculture). Finding the balance between two of them can be achieved through many means, one that I’m learning and researching currently is spatial simulation. My master thesis is about modelling of trees to comprehend the alpine tree line dynamics, caused by land use and climate change. Cartographic design, remote sensing and web map applications are dear to me as well.
