Dr Serene Ho

Responsible Geospatial Innovation

My work focuses on geospatial innovation as social innovation for land rights recording. Mainly working with vulnerable communities, I research the relationship between social structures (culture, norms, laws) and behavior, and the development and use of geospatial data and technologies.
