Biography

I am a broadly trained health geographer who uses cutting-edge spatial analysis methods to advance our knowledge of health and cancer disparities. I employ GIScience methods and big data tools to answer substantive research questions about disparities and whether dynamics of place (location and time) increases the prevalence of disease in specific sub-populations. GIScience methods—spatial analysis, geocomputation, and geovisulization—are needed to communicate this knowledge to health researchers, practitioners, and broader communities.
