Agnieszka Leszczynski Western University, Canada
(PhD, Washington) is a geographer with longstanding interests at the subdisciplinary interfaces of critical human geography and geographic information science. She currently lectures in GIScience at the University of Auckland. Her research emphasizes novel intersections of geolocation, spatial big data, society and space in a present characterized by the unprecedented pervasiveness of spatial content, interfaces and technologies in the spaces and practices of everyday life. In this vein, she has published on the changing nature of geoprivacy, gender and the rise of geolocation, and the political economies of spatial media. Currently, she is interested in the ways in which geolocation is economically valued and being leveraged as an organizing logic for ‘disruptive’ economic activities.
