About the Author
I am Professor of Geography and Biostatistics at the University at Buffalo. My research interests are in the area of demography and population change, epidemiology, spatial statistics, and spatial analysis. My current work is focused upon the development of new methods for the quick detection of newly emergent clusters in geographic data (for example, how does one determine as quickly as possible whether there is a new cluster of crime or disease?).
