Dr Simon Alderton

Simon is a Senior Research Associate at Lancaster University.

He has a diverse background, having completed a BSc and MSc in Physical Geography at Durham University, before undertaking a PhD in Complex System Simulation at the University of Southampton. Simon’s multidisciplinary education has led him to undertake computational modelling research of spatially explicit systems, and the interactions between people, animals, and the environment around them.

His current research consists of the continued development of a fine-resolution, multi-host agent-based model for sleeping sickness in Eastern Province, Zambia, and organisation of Lancaster University’s new Geospatial Data Science research group.
