Dr Jed Long is a lecturer at the Department of Geography & Sustainable Development, in the School of Geography & Geosciences, University of St Andrews, Scotland UK. He is currently completing his PhD in Geography from the University of Victoria, Canada. He holds an MSc in Geography from the University of Victoria, Canada, an advanced diploma in GIS from the Centre of Geographic Sciences, Canada, and a BSc from the University of Guelph, Canada.

Broadly, Jed is interested in the development of novel forms of spatial and space-time analysis. His research tends to focus on applications relating to spatial ecology. Currently his research focus is on the development of quantitative methods for movement data, e.g., data obtained by GPS tracking. He is also interested in various aspects of GIScience; including spatial modelling, volunteered geographic information, and map comparison. A big sports fan, Jed is also keenly interested in developing spatial and space-time tools for sports analytics.
