Research Interests

My primary area of research is the computational aspects of movement analysis; with expertise in both wildlife and human applications. I also study spatial-temporal models, with specific application to wildlife conservation and environmental issues. Finally, I am constantly looking for ways to apply spatial analysis to develop new sports analytics.
