Much of my early research focused on the trade off between equity and efficiency of delivery of public and private economic activity most notably in transportation and education. I applied spatial data analysis to develop public infrastructure such as the Expo Transit Line in metro Vancouver and to examine the New York inner-city school funding controversy. More recently I have extended my interests into public health and morphed spatial analysis approaches used in transportation to apply to vectors of disease transmission in epidemiology
