Biography

Tan Yigitcanlar is an Associate Professor at the School of Civil Engineering and Built Environment, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane (Australia). Along with this position, he also carries out an Executive Director role at the World Capital Institute, Monterrey (Mexico), an Honorary Professor position at the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianopolis (Brazil), and an Adjunct Professor role at the Open Innovation Academy, Daegu (Korea).

He has been responsible for research, teaching, training and capacity building programs on the fields of urban planning and development in esteemed Australian, Brazilian, Korean, Finnish, Japanese and Turkish universities. He is an eminent Australian scholar with international recognition, reputation and impact on policy, practice and society. His research aims to address contemporary urban planning and development challenges—that are economic, societal, spatial, governance or technology related in nature. The main foci of his research interests, within the broad field of urban planning and development, are clustered around the following three interdisciplinary themes.

The first research theme focuses on ‘Smart Technologies, Communities, Cities and Urbanism’. In this stream of research, he examines the disruptive effects, along with the beneficial impacts,of urban technologies and digital transformation of urban services and infrastructures on our cities and societies. His research in this theme covers, but not limited to, the following topics: Smart urban technology; Smart city; Smart community; Smart precinct; Smart urbanism; Smart mobility (e.g., autonomous driving, mobility-as-a-service); Citizen science (e.g., crowdsourcing, volunteered geographic information); Gamification and gamified applications.

The second research theme focuses on ‘Knowledge-Based Development of Cities and Innovation Districts’. In this stream of research, he scrutinises the impacts of global knowledge and innovation economy on our cities and societies, along with developing strategies for space and place making for knowledge-based activities in cities. His research in this theme covers, but not limited to, the following topics: Knowledge-based urban and regional development; Knowledge and innovation economy; Knowledge industry, business and worker; Urban innovation system; Urban knowledge and innovation space; Innovation district; Place making and branding.

The third research theme focuses on ‘Sustainable and Resilient Cities, Communities and Urban Ecosystems’. In this stream of research, he explores existing and prospective urban and environmental dynamics and challenges to determine strategies for planning and designing sustainable, resilient, responsive and liveable natural and built urban environments. His research in this theme covers, but not limited to, the following topics: Sustainable urban and infrastructure development; Sustainable transport; Urban and environmental sustainability performance assessment; Water sensitive urban design; Zero waste; Climate change; Urban heat island; Post-Anthropocentric urbanism.

He is the Editor-in-Chief of ‘Elsevier’s Smart Cities Book Series’, the Honorary Editor-in-Chief of ‘International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development’, a Section Editor-in-Chief of ‘Sustainability’, a Regional Editor of ‘Journal of Knowledge Management’, and an Associate Editor of ‘International Journal of Environmental Science and Technology’, ‘Global Journal of Environmental Science and Management’, ‘Journal of Open Innovation: Technology, Market, and Complexity’, ‘Asia Pacific Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship’, and ‘Journal of Smart Cities’. Additionally, he is an editorial board member of ‘Journal of Urban Technology’, ‘Knowledge Management Research & Practice’, ‘Measuring Business Excellence’, ‘International Journal of Knowledge-Based Organizations’, and ‘Urban Science’.

He undertakes the Chairman role of the annual ‘Knowledge Cities World Summit’ series, and under this brand organised conferences in many locations of the world since 2007. These locations include: Monterrey (Mexico); Shenzhen (China); Melbourne (Australia); Bento Gonçalves (Brazil); Matera (Italy); Istanbul (Turkey); Tallinn (Estonia); Daegu (Korea); Vienna (Austria); Arequipa (Peru); Tenerife (Spain); Florianopolis (Brazil). He also contributed in the organisation of other over two-dozen international conferences in various capacities. He has also delivered over 50 keynote and invited talks at the prestigious international academic conferences and industry events.

He has published his research findings extensively. These publications also include over 200 articles and chapters published in high-impact journals and books, and the following 11 key reference books published by esteemed international publishing houses: ‘Geographies of Disruption’ (Springer, 2019); ‘Urban Knowledge and Innovation Spaces’ (Routledge, 2018); ‘Technology and the City’ (Routledge, 2016); ‘Knowledge and the City’ (Routledge, 2014); ‘Sustainable Urban Water Environment’ (Edward Elgar, 2014); ‘Building Prosperous Knowledge Cites’ (Edward Elgar, 2012); ‘Knowledge-Based Development for Cities and Societies’ (IGI Global, 2010); ‘Sustainable Urban and Regional Infrastructure Development’ (IGI Global, 2010); ‘Rethinking Sustainable Development’ (IGI Global, 2010); ‘Knowledge-Based Urban Development’ (IGI Global, 2008); ‘Creative Urban Regions’ (IGI Global, 2008).
