Research interests:

Research focuses on the development and implementation of Context-Aware Movement Analysis (CAMA) to further understand behavior from movement data. More specifically, in combining movement data with environmental and socio-economic variables to understand how different factors can influence human mobility and wildlife behavior. This knowledge is critical for planning equalitarian sustainable transportation systems, as well as designing biodiversity conservation plans.
