Dr. Monica Wachowicz is Associate Professor and the NSERC/Cisco Industrial Research Chair in Real-Time Mobility Analytics at the University of New Brunswick, Canada. She is also the Director of the People in Motion Laboratory, a centre of expertise in the application of Internet of Things (IoT) to smart cities. Her research work is directly related to the vision of a constellation of inter-connected devices in the future that will contain information about the context and location of things across several geographical and temporal scales. She works at the intersection of (1) Streaming Analytics for analyzing massive IoT data in search of valuable spatio-temporal patterns in real-time; and (2) Art, Cartography, and Representations of mobility for making the maps of the future which will be culturally and linguistically designed to provide a greater “sense of people” in motion.

Founding member of the IEEE Big Data Initiative and the International Journal of Big Data Intelligence, she is also joint Editor-in-Chief of the Cartographica Journal. Her pioneering work in multidisciplinary teams from government, industry and research organizations is fostering the next generation of geospatial data scientists for innovation.
