Profile Detail

Jay Lee


My interests include relating geographic events and patterns through time and space. This includes quantitatively modeling changing geographic events as a diffusing spatial processes. This may be applied to many aspects of our daily life: land use, air pollution, crime, public health, and how all these interact with environment. Some of my publications and research grants have involved digital elevation models, environmental conservation, GIS, web-based GIS, urban growth, urban sprawl, management of urban growth and areal health disparities. Recent work includes developing a urban growth simulator, an environmental pollution simulator, and a urban crime simulator. Currently, my team is developing simulator that uses agent-based models to simulate how neighborhoods develop disparities in public health.
