My research focuses on the relationship between the structure and function of built environments and health-related behaviors. As a quantitative social and geographic information scientist, I investigate very high resolution spatial, temporal, and behavioral data in the domains of physical activity, nutrition, and rehabilitation medicine. My research focuses on individual persons and detailed built environment features as units of measurement and analysis, and aims to bridge the gap between individual and population levels.
