My primary research interests lie at the intersection of GIS, spatial data handling, and risk assessment using spatially-indexed demographic and socio-economic data. I am particularly interested in the development of methods for integrating complex, unstructured datasets pertaining to the assessment of diseases and/or disasters. My research is highly interdisciplinary with collaborations across multiple areas including Computer Science, Environmental Science, and Public Health.
