Biography

A. Stewart Fotheringham is Foundation Professor of Computational Spatial Science and a Regents Professor as well as a distinguished sustainability scientist in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. His research interests are in the analysis of spatial data sets using statistical, mathematical and computational methods. He is well-known in the fields of spatial interaction modeling and local statistical analysis; the latter as one of the developers of geographically weighted regression (GWR). He has substantive interests in health data, crime patterns, retailing and migration.

Fotheringham established both the Centre for GeoInformatics at the University of St Andrews in Scotland and the National Centre for Geocomputation in Ireland. He is a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and Academia Europaea and a fellow of the UK's Academy of Social Sciences. He serves on the Executive Committee of the Transportation Research Board and on the Evaluation panel for the European Research Council's Consolidator Grants scheme. He was awarded the first Science Foundation Ireland Research Professorship in 2004 and has been awarded more than $15 millon in funding, published 12 books and almost 200 research papers and book chapters.
