I am a Senior Research Fellow in the School of Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton working with the WorldPop project.
In my work I focus on developing and applying quantitative spatial methods to explore the distribution, dynamics, and health of populations around the world. I am particularly interested in understanding how socioeconomic and political contexts impact human-environment interactions and the effects of these interactions for human health.
My current research activities include high resolution mapping of population distributions and demographics to support national statistics offices in several countries. Another project examines the social and spatio-temporal patterns of exposure to arsenic-contaminated drinking water and related health impacts in rural Bangladesh.
I received my PhD in Geography from the University of Colorado Boulder working with Elisabeth Root and with members of the Population Program and Health and Society Program at the Institute of Behavioral Science. Previously I worked with the Geographic Information Science and Technology group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
