Research and Teaching Interests:
My research interests focus on remote sensing, geographic information sciences (GIS), spatial analysis and modeling, and their applications in urban areas. One of my research areas is urban impervious surface and population estimation using remote sensing and GIS technologies. Other research areas include population estimation, housing market modeling, transportation analysis, and urban growth analyses.
