About

Geoff Boeing headshotMy CV is available here.

I am a postdoc in the Urban Analytics Lab at the University California, Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from Berkeley in 2017. My research broadly revolves around urban data science, urban form, and complexity. This includes studying street networks, affordable housing, and the relationship between the deterministic nature of urban design and the emergent characteristics of urban form that arise out of complex systems. My research has been covered by The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, Fast Company, CityLab, Forbes, NextCity, and various other media outlets.

I was the co-lead instructor for Urban Informatics and Visualization, a graduate-level course at Berkeley that trains city planning students with a modern toolkit to collect, process, analyze, and visualize urban data for research and advocacy. It emphasizes computational statistics, data wrangling, visualization, and mapping using Python, open-source tools, and public data.

I am also available for consulting engagements. Prior to academia, I was a credentialed Project Management Professional (PMP) and worked for years as a project manager and consultant at Accenture, where I led several projects both domestically and abroad. For one R&D project, my co-invention received a patent.

My research and projects are on Google ScholarResearchGate, AcademiaSSRN, SocArXiv, the arXiv, and ORCID.
