Research Overview

I am interested in the mapping, geospatial modeling and locational analysis of medical and health issues, particularly issues relating to individualized spatial exposure; environmental interactions, and effects of climate change on pathogens and disease ecologies. Some of my previous work focuses on GIScience, visualization and multimedia and interactive mapping, as well as research in cultural and human geography.
