Research

My research aims to develop new methods of spatial analysis and modelling that can be broadly applied within GIScience and related fields. Specific statistical and mathematical approaches of interest include: density estimation, point pattern analysis, time geography, spatial optimization models, and network analysis. Application areas of interest encompass a variety of topics, including wildlife ecology, global sustainability, public health and safety, and transportation. I am also interested in geovisualization, particularly in how it facilitates spatial analysis and modelling.
