image showing progression of technology trends and their impact

The technology gets smaller and its impact gets bigger. The focus remains constant: how new technology alters the intelligence – decision – action cycle that underpins the performance and behaviour of systems

Academic studies span cognitive, computer and data sciences combined with a practical interest in lessons from nature. Having recently completed a MSc in Smart Cities and Urban Analytics, Sharon is conducting doctoral research at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), University College London in spatial cognition. Topic: Digitally sensing and evoking behavioural change in urban spaces with the ‘internet of things’ (IoT) and real-time data

An experienced international speaker, Sharon is available for conferences and discussion panels, and can provide comments for media purposes
