Research Interests

My approach to geography is heavily influenced by the use of geographic information systems (GIS) as an analytical tool to understand spatial relationships across a range of topics. Research topics I have investigated using GIS and other methods include land use planning, biogeography, forest ecology, climate change, transportation, disease, hydrology and economic development.
