Throughout my life, I believed that places and spatial relations do shape our identity, and our perception of the world. During my educational career path, I started to experience that health disparities vary by place, and became curious about the direction of this relation.
Currently, I am working on my PhD degree in Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University, and consider myself as a health/medical geographer. My main area of interests is the production of knowledge that helps to understand geographic health disparities in relation to socioeconomic and environmental factors. My research methods include spatial statistical analysis, GIS-based spatial modeling and remote sensing techniques.
