Dr. Curriero’s research focus is on the development and application of spatial and spatial-temporal statistical methods in the public health sciences. Much of his current work involves translating methods of spatial science involving spatial data, GIS and spatial statistics for building research capacity in wide ranging public health applications. His efforts have focused on identifying and quantifying spatial variation for improved exposure assessment via geostatistical methods and for models characterizing spatial variation in risk as a function of environmental determinants.
A substantial part of Dr. Curriero’s academic agenda involves education; leading the development of the onsite spatial analysis curriculum at Johns Hopkins (currently includes the four course sequence in spatial analysis) as well as director of the online Master of Applied Science in Spatial Analysis for Public Health program.
