SpaceTimeWorks collaborates with a select network of scientists that have significant expertise in spatiotemporal analysis. Our senior esteemed colleagues have been making critical contributions to the methodologies employed for our analysis for over two decades, whereas our junior colleagues make significant, promising steps in our focus of studies. The work of our collaborators spans across evolving the conceptual backbone of modern space-time theory; contributing fundamental additions to the open-source software that SpaceTimeWorks employs and enriches for use in our projects; and making relevant advances that can have creative impact in the field of spatiotemporal analysis.


Prof. George Christakos

DeTao Master, Studio of Innovative Space-Time Thinking, DeTao Academy, Shanghai, China

National Distinguished Chair Professor, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China

Distinguished Professor - S.M. Birch Endowed Chair, San Diego State University, CA, USA

Prof. Christakos is one of the first scientists to develop a systematic theoretical approach for stochastic spatiotemporal analysis and space-time statistics. His first published contribution in the space-time area dates back to 1991, whereas he has been involved in spatial analysis since the late 1980s. His presence in the field was solidified in 1992 with his book Random Field Models in Earth Sciences that made an impact in the statisticians' and engineering communities. He is the author or main author of 6 books to-date; all of them introduce new research, conceptual, and computational developments in modern spatiotemporal analysis. He is best known for developing science-based spatiotemporal methodologies for stochastic prediction, and his work is being successfully applied and published in a variety of scientific disciplines. Apart from his current position, he is also the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment.

Prof. Patrick Bogaert

Professor; Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium

Prof. Bogaert has extensive experience in spatiotemporal analysis and related geostatistical methodologies. He has been making significant contributions to the theoretical development and evolution of existing methods, and is a co-author and editor of spatiotemporal analysis books. In addition, he put the ground work together for numerical libraries that implement modern spatiotemporal analysis approaches, and continues to develop numerical aspects of his research. The software libraries used by SpaceTimeWorks have their foundation in Prof. Bogaert's original creations.

Prof. Dionissios Hristopulos

Professor, Head of the Geostatistics Research Unit; Technical University of Crete, Greece

Prof. Hristopulos has broad expertise in the development and application of geostatistical methods. His fields of interest include environmental monitoring, GIS mapping functions, mineral resources estimation, petroleum reservoir simulation, stochastic hydrology, statistics of extreme events, and mechanical properties of porous materials. He is the co-author of the book Spatiotemporal Environmental Health Modeling where he demonstrates his research in space-time analytical methodologies and applications in environmental health. He is currently working on the development of new space-time models based on Spartan spatial random fields.
