Research Interests

My research emphasis has been directed at the design, development, and analysis of paradigms used for computer applications in Urban and Environmental Planning, and Engineering. More specifically, my research efforts have been directed at the analysis and design of dynamic models and the use of spatial analysis systems, commonly referred to as geographic information systems.
