I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of New Mexico. I received my PhD in Geographic Information Science (2014) from Texas State University.
I am a geographer in GIS and health/medical geography. My research has focused on the development of GIS and spatial analysis methods and their applications in order to gain a better understanding of relationships among human health, the society, and the environment. My research in GIS engages spatial analysis and modeling, including web-based spatial demographic research and data mining. My work in health/medical geography focuses on health disparities, including cancer prevention and control,as well as the development of targeted intervention programs to reduce health disparities.
