Development and application of spatial measurement and analysis tools for characterisation of place-based influences on health.
Various research topics covering the spatial dimension of our interaction with the environment and its health impacts: mobility patterns and exposure to environmental risk factors; built environment and accessibility to resources and foodscapes in relation to childhood obesity, mental health and healthy aging; neighbourhood effects and HIV and HCV transmission among injection drug users; heat islands and air quality in relation to mortality. Complementary methodological exploration of econometric hedonic modeling as a tool for assessing health-relevant externalities.
