PhD Student, Geomatics

I am currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program in Geospatial Analysis at the Florida Research and Education Center in Davie Florida. My current research uses crowd-sourced data from fitness tracker apps to assess characteristics of the built and natural environments that influence cyclists route, choice or app choice and to compare routes used by cyclists with those suggested by routing engines. In addition, these data are being used to assess what characteristics of Florida State Parks and their surrounding areas attract users for various physical activities. I currently have three papers under review in three separate journals.

In addition to my GIS research I have co-authored a mathematics text book and teach mathematics at Broward College in Davie Florida. I hope to finish my dissertation and successfully defend it sometime in 2021.
