She is also Associate Editor of Geographical Analysis and is currently on the editorial board of The Professional Geographer and Journal of Transport Geography. Her research interests include geographic information science, access to jobs and healthcare, the effect of sociogeographic context on health outcomes, protection of geoprivacy through geographic masking, and human activity-travel behavior in space-time. Her work focuses mainly on the geographical and temporal characteristics of people's daily activities, and the impact of recent social, economic and political changes on the geography of their daily activities. She has developed GIS-based geocomputation and 3D geovisualization methods for the analysis of activity-travel diary data in her recent research.
