I am a professor in the Geography Department and associate dean for research in the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI. I have been teaching and doing research with GIS for about 20 years. My research interests include geographic information science, human health and well being, and the geography of everyday life. I specialize in integrating geographic methods in studies examining environmental effects on health-related behaviors and outcomes. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to collaborate with great colleagues from different disciplines including medicine, public health, nursing, the social and natural sciences, and the humanities. Our research has been supported by grants from the National Institutes for Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Geographic Society, the School of Liberal Arts, IUPUI, and Indiana University.
