Yulia Grinblat, PhD student
I’ve got my MA at the Department of Cartography and Geoinformatics, Moscow State University, Russia.
My PhD research focuses on the analysis of the land use dynamics within and beyond the urban fringe.
I work a lot with the open GIS tools, especially with the QGIS/Postgres bundle and develop Python applications for spatial analysis and transportation studies. My wider research interests include modeling land use degradation dynamics, analysis of transportation data and travel activities.
