One of my ongoing interests is in developing quantitative spatial analytical methods that allow us to investigate how the population and its characteristics are unevenly distributed across space and may vary depending upon the geographic context. In particular, I am interested in methods that allow us to investigate multiple factors that may be associated with an outcome, including social, economic, demographic and health indicators from both traditional sources of survey data and newer "big data" sources that allow us to incorporate the effects of the built environment on the population and how lifestyles and lived experiences change over time.
