We model spatial effects explicitly to uncover new understanding, and are pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in evaluation research and social-spatial network analysis, as well as design-driven infrastructures.
Join our Seminar Series to learn about the latest work in the field.
Welcome to HeRoP
The Healthy Regions & Policy Lab is housed at the Center for Spatial Data Science and integrates innovative GIScience, public health, and statistical approaches to explore, understand, and promote healthy regions and policies.
Spatial Data Science For Good
For each project we take on, we commit to both research and translation for policy & public use. We’ve collaborated with health departments, community organizations, and national healthcare groups to translate research for good.
We likewise maintain a commitment to Open Science.
