Jim White is studying a PhD with the Programmable City project at NIRSA, Maynooth University. His research will evaluate smart city standards and processes of standardisation, as well as the effects they have on urban politics. He hopes to help give smart city practitioners and civil servants in Dublin a better overview of the strengths and weaknesses of the standards they might adopt, and to contribute to academic debates on the smart city, the role of standardisation and trans-national governance.

Jim’s research interests include:

  • standards making
  • taxis and urban mobility
  • urban geography
  • code, codings and algorithms
  • risk, security and governance
