I recently worked as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the Center for Geospatial Sciences at the University of California, campus Riverside (UCR). In this experience, I worked under the supervision of Serge Rey and the research involved developing new methods of inference for nonspatial and spatial segregation measures, new methods for identifying and dealing with neighborhoods, spatial interpolation methods, and data visualization for spatial data.
