Presentations

 

Critical Geographies Mini-Conference

Eugene, OR | October 2019

At this mini-conference I present my work assessing municipalities’ open data across the United States. With special attention to the datasets that might serve to increase the mobilitiy of persons with disabilities, I use the empirical data to interrogate priorities. What is counted? Why? About or for whom?

Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers

Washington, D.C. | April 2019

In this paper presentation I discuss a new methodology for capturing spatial patterns in household level sociodemographic relationships, which I used to understand plumbing incompleteness across the United States. This paper further explores that methodology — comparing findings from aggregate analyses (Geographically Weighted Regression) at various census levels (PUMA, county, tract) to the new method that I created which conducts non-spatial household regression then analyzes the results of those multiple regressions spatially.

Annual Meeting of the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers

Reno, Nevada | October 2018

Founded in 1935, the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers (APCG) is one of the oldest regional organizations in the discipline. I presented the first paper of my PhD dissertation research at the APCG Annual Conference, held in the high desert city of Reno, Nevada.

Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers

New Orleans, Louisiana

Household water insecurity is a recognized problem for sustainable and equitable human development. Previous research has identified key sociodemographic variables that explain poor infrastructure access for households, yet existing metrics lack a systematic consideration of geographic inequality and spatial variation. In this poster presentation at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Geographers (AAG), I identify geographic hot spots of plumbing poverty and reveal its racial and spatial character.
