Research Interests:

I have interests in GIS, geostatistics and their applications in natural resource management and environmental evaluation.

My current research concentrates on:

  1. Multi-Dimensional Markov chain modeling,
  2. GIS Cyberinfrastructure (,
  3. Applications of geostatistics and GIS Cyberinfrastructure techniques in natural resource and environmental studies (e.g. land use/cover change, natural resource management, landscape ecology, environmental planning, as well as transportation geography studies). For example, here is a recently funded project by NSF: “CNH-Ex: Interactive Effects of Economics, Public Policy, Land Use Change, and Invasive Plants in Long Island Sound Watersheds”.
