I am a Professor at the Department of Geography, San Diego State University. I am interested in a broad range of topics, including health geography, reciprocal human-environment relationships, urban geography, and human adaptations to disasters/hazards. Complexity theory, sociology, demography, geographic information science, quantitative methods and space-time analysis, and landscape ecology leverage theoretical and methodological support toward my research in these domains.
