Event description

Description

In the footsteps of SFU's successful, long-running Philosopher’s Café series, the City Program presents the Data Café.

The #SFUdatacafe will be moderated by Andy Yan, director of the SFU City Program. To prime the conversation, we'll start with a few data professionals from the city and region. From there, we welcome attendees to share their data work about the City of Vancouver and region, including their techniques and lessons learned. While we appreciate tales of triumph, we encourage stories of ongoing data and visualization challenges, allowing the audience to pitch technical advice or offer words of encouragement. If you wish to present, please keep your presentation under seven minutes in length and we’ll have a laptop with Powerpoint and an Internet connection.

There will be time for networking afterwards.

Speakers:

"Fire Traps, Rat Traps and Complete Communities: Triangulating Quantitative and Qualitative Neighbourhood Data"

Craig E. Jones, is a PhD candidate in the Department of Geography at the University of British Columbia. His current research is a comparative study of five rental neighbourhoods in Metro Vancouver’s suburban centres. Craig employs a mixed-methods approach to incorporate a variety of data sources in order to study how transportation and land use planning, municipal housing policy, and the development industry have increased redevelopment pressure on aging, affordable, purpose-built rental apartment buildings that provide housing options to marginalized renters such as low-income people, recent immigrants, and refugees.

“Let's Talk Spatial”

Mehdi is a PhD student in the Department of Geography at Simon Fraser University. Using urban surface energy balance models, his research aims to assess the effectiveness of urban greening and reflective roofs in keeping Vancouver’s urban neighborhoods cool and people safe during an extreme heat event.
