Holderness co-directs with Etienne Turpin. harnesses the power of social media to gather, sort, and display information about flooding for Jakarta residents in real time. In collaboration with colleagues from Newcastle University (UK), Dr. Holderness developed a pioneering spatio-topological database schema for encoding, modelling, and analyzing spatial infrastructure networks, and their inter-dependencies.
