SPACE - About: Personnel
Mei-Po Kwan is Professor of Geography at the Ohio State University and has been awarded the rank of Distinguished Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
She is the incoming (Sept. 2005) editor of the 'Methods, Models, and GIS' section of the Annals of the Association of American Geographers and is a consulting editor of Geographical Analysis. In 2005 she has been awarded the UCGIS researcher of the year and the Edward L Ullman Award from the Transport Geography Specialty Group of the Association of American Geographers for outstanding contributions to the field of transportation geography. Her research focuses on GIS for transportation, in particular, space-time patterns of human spatial behavior, gender and ethnic dimensions of transportation, telecommunications and information technologies, and Intelligent Transportation Systems. Her recent research on the analysis of activity-travel diary data uses geocomputation and geovisualization methods. Research on information technologies and women's everyday lives is supported by a grant from the Information Technology Research Program of the National Science Foundation.
