Justin van Dijk is a post-doctoral research associate, working in the Geospatial Analytics and Computing group with the department of Geography. His research mainly contributes to the Urban Dynamics Lab research group (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/urban-dynamics-lab).

Prior to joining UCL, Justin worked towards a PhD at Stellenbosch University. In his dissertation, he investigated how location-aware technologies, in particular GPS-enabled smartphones, and the analysis of spatiotemporal behaviour can assist in the design of a voluntary travel behaviour change intervention; ultimately aimed at changing individual travel behaviour through personalised incentives.
