Abstract:

Urban systems are systems of systems, and although we have developed entire disciplines to model and understand each of these systems, it remains a challenge to be able to model the interacting systems. In this talk, we look at how network science can serve as a potential framework and bring insights into understanding better resilience and spillovers in urban systems.  For the purpose of illustration, we consider the case of agglomeration economies in London.

About the Speaker:

Dr Elsa Arcaute is an Associate Professor in Spatial Modelling and Complexity Science at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at University College London. She is a physicist with a masters and a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge. She started working in the field of Complexity Sciences in 2006, when joining the Complexity and Networks group at Imperial College London. Since joining CASA in 2011, she has been working on applying complexity sciences to urban systems, focusing on understanding behaviour at different scales, and on uncovering such scales by looking at the emergent hierarchies in complex systems.
