Research Interest

  • My research addresses health, social, transport, economic, and environmental issues in urban areas through the application of innovative GIS methods.
  • Mapping and analysis of social and spatial inequalities in access to local government agencies.
  • I am also interested in studying how specific characteristics of the social and physical environment affect the well-being and behavior of different social groups (e.g., health behaviors and outcomes, access to jobs, social isolation, residential segregation, environmental justice, and spatial mobility.
  • As well as this field-based research, our group has many projects collaborating with colleagues in Civil and Environmental Engineering
  • I have several projects working on river processes on the Anjarakandi and Mahi River
