Dr. Jonathan Cinnamon is a broadly trained human geographer and geographic information scientist with a current research focus on datafication and the expansion of digital technologies in urban, health, and development contexts. His work develops methods for data production and visualization for low-resource settings, and attends to the ethical and political implications of data and technologies in processes of social change. This research has been funded by research councils in Canada, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.

Prior to joining Ryerson, Jonathan was a faculty member at the University of Exeter in the UK, and he has held visiting positions at Wits University in Johannesburg, and Ohio State University.

"Being a graduate of Ryerson's Department of Geography and Environmental Studies (2007, BA Geographic Analysis), Jonathan's choice to join the department as a faculty member was an easy one. Jonathan is excited to contribute to Ryerson's unique brand of career focused education and policy relevant research, its growth ambitions, and commitment to local issues in the city."
