My interests are both methodological and substantive. Methodologically, I am interested in spatial analyses, multilevel models, and multivariate zero-inflated outcomes applied to both cross-sectional and longitudinal data, as well as applications combining survey and remote-sensing data (people to pixels). Substantively, I have been involved in population-environment research to examine the relationship between demographic and economic change resulting in changes in land use and land cover.
