Dr. Lauriault is a Research Associate with the ERC funded Programmable City Project, under the Directorship of Professor Rob Kitchin, based at the National Institute of Regional and Spatial Analysis (NIRSA), Naynooth University.  She is also Associate Professor of Critical Media Studies and Big Data in the Department of Journalism and Communications, Communication Studies, at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.  Between September 2013 and June 2015 she was a Postdoctoral Researcher on the Programmable City Project.

She continues her research in the area of Political Arithmetic, Territorial Geometry and Programmed Cities which entails ongoing case study work on the following topics in relation to Work Package 2: How are digital data materially and discursively supported and processed about cities and their citizens?

  1. Re-Ontologizing the City, focusing on the transition from a cartographic database (Prime) to an object oriented database (Prime 2) which is a technological transformation for Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSi)
  2. Measuring Openess in the City, critically examining open data from a genealogical perspective in Dublin, Ottawa, Montreal and Boston.
  3. The making of homeless people and calculating homelessness, studying the making up of homeless people by studying shelter intake systems, street counts and official census taking of the homeless in Dublin, Ottawa and Boston.

In addition, she is doing a study on the making of the Irish small area file.  Along with conducting theoretical and empirical research, she was also involved, in an advisory capacity in a number of public sector committees and participated in a number civil society activities, most notably the following:

  • National Public Bodies Working Group on Open Data (PBWG), led by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (D/PER)
  • Dublin Region Housing Executive, Research and Data Advisory Committee (DRHE-RDAC)
  • Open Knowledge Foundation Ireland
  • International Research Data Alliance Legal  Interoperability Interest Group,
  • Natural Resources Canada Canada (NRCan) Roundtable on Geomatics Legal and Policy Interest Group.

Her research focus is part of the a new field entitled Critical Data Studies, and her areas of interest are Data, Infrastructures and Geographical Imaginations, spatial data infrastructures, open data and the preservation and access to research and geomatics data and Big Data. She is also actively engaged in public policy research as it pertains to data and their related infrastructures.

As a citizen, she is engaged in the promotion of evidence-informed decision-making as part of democratic deliberation and is actively engaged in advancing those issues within civil society organizations, academic institutions and government. This includes activities related to open data and open government in Canada, Ireland and internationally.

Prior to coming to Ireland she was a researcher with the Geomatics and Cartographic Research Centre, at Carleton University, in Ottawa where she investigated the archiving and preservation of geospatial data; legal and policy issues associated with geospatial, administrative and civil society data; and cybercartography which includes atlases and olfactory cartography.
