Research Summary

I use big datasets and geospatial technologies and spatial data science methods to address applied research questions across a wide range of topics. Much of my work concerns issues related to health geographics/geohealth, in particular understanding the ecology of disease/health across space and time; the use of novel technologies and data sources to better understand mobility and perceptions within communities, how places are connected and how this affects the health and well-being of society. My work intersects all aspects of geography (physical, human, GIScience and environment and society).
