    Research Interests
    My research interests involve the development of new procedures, models and software systems for the application of spatial analysis and data mining to a wide variety of disciplines including natural resources management, precision agriculture and geo-business. Recent projects include infusing stakeholder perspectives into GIS models, use of optimal path and corridor analysis in siting pipelines and electric transmission lines, web delivery of spatial analysis capabilities, applying geotechnology for precision conservation management, precision agriculture systems development, retail competition analysis and spatial factors affecting shopper propensity.
