Exploring IoT interventions in Smart City Digital Twins

Dr. John E. Taylor
Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology.

Dr. John E. Taylor is the inaugural Frederick Law Olmsted Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Dr. Taylor received his PhD in 2006 from Stanford University on the topic of innovation in architecture, engineering and construction industry networks. At Georgia Tech, he is the founder and Director of the Network Dynamics Lab (http://ndl.gatech.edu/). He specializes in investigating engineering network dynamics of industrial and societal importance. His current research focuses on; (1) achieving sustained energy conservation by coupling energy use with occupant networks and examining inter-building network phenomena in cities, and (2) understanding and improving response times by affected human networks during extreme events in urban areas. His research extends from developing virtual and augmented reality applications to collect and visualize urban scale data, to developing real-time interventions to improve urban sustainability and resilience. Dr. Taylor’s research has received funding from the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the Earth Institute, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, among others. His research was awarded the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award in 2011. Dr. Taylor has authored over 200 technical publications and his research publications have won five journal best paper awards. Dr. Taylor is the founder of two technology startups in the civil engineering field and currently serves on the Advisory Board for two technology startups.

Dr. Neda Madi
City Infrastructure Analytics Director, Georgia Institute of Technology

Dr. Neda Madi is a researcher in the area of city infrastructure systems with a focus on human-infrastructure interactivity. Her primary research applies the concept of spatiotemporal flux to investigating fluctuating phenomena in city infrastructure systems, linked by an underlying influence from the human population. She focuses on understanding and quantifying the effects that can inform and affect positive change in such systems through integrated and predictive analytics. Currently the City Infrastructure Analytics Director at the Network Dynamics Lab in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Georgia Tech, she leads projects that investigate human-infrastructure interactions as an interconnected system across the reality–virtuality continuum and has several publications in the area of urban dynamics, cyberphysical systems, and smart city digital twins.
