Applications of spatial statistics and geographic information systems (GIS) in public health. Research applications involve areas related to environmental epidemiology, disease mapping, and spatial variation in risk models. Current methodological research includes selection bias in spatial data and models for non-Euclidean isotropic spatial dependence.
