My area of research and teaching interests are in geographic information science and human environmental interaction. Specifically, I investigate human environmental decision making and behavior. My research approach usually relies on controlled research design, data collection and analysis. I employ qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods in these efforts, which often lead to conceptual and computational modeling of ideas and/or empirically-derived data. Much of my research is grounded in spatial information theory, decision making theory, cognition, and neurogeography.
