Abstract

Computational Urban Sciences refer to the use of information and communication technology and data in the context of cities and urban environments. First, I present methods to identify patterns of behavior in energy consumption and credit card transactions. Then I show how this is a more complex task when working with environmental data. I finalize with open questions and proposed research to study human-natural systems interactions.

Biography: 

Marta C. Gonzalez is an Associate Professor of City and Regional Planning and Civil and Env. Eng. at UC Berkeley, and a Physics Research faculty at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). With support from several companies, cities and foundations from around the world, her research team develops computational models to analyze digital traces to estimate the demand on urban infrastructures in relation to energy and mobility. 

Examples are: traffic gridlocks and the integration of electric vehicles in the power grid, policy of solar energy adoption, and habits in spending behavior. Her research has been published in leading journals, including Science, PNAS, Nature and Physical Review Letters.
