Dr Dearden is a Lecturer in Human Geography at Swansea University. His research focuses on developing novel interactive visualisation techniques to explore dynamic urban models. Before joining Swansea University, he gained a PhD from University College London and a BEng Computing degree at Imperial College. His research findings appear in a wide variety of journals including IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics, Transactions in GIS and Geographical Analysis. He recently published a book entitled Explorations in Urban and Regional Dynamics。 Dr. Gong is a Research fellow at Sustainable Places Research Institute and School of Medicine at Cardiff University, UK. Her work focuses on the relationships between environment, human activities and health. As a health and environmental geographer, Dr. Gong integrates knowledge across disciplines (including geography, planning, sociology, epidemiology, GIScience) and explore ways to develop a better understanding of (1) the interplay of social, economic and environmental factors in relation to human health and behaviour (e.g. walking, physical activity), (2) the impact of place-making in shaping sustainable urban development and (3) the community resilience and vulnerability in relation to natural hazards and climate-related disasters.
