North Bay money flowed into Canadian trucker protest

The Press Democrat

Upon first glance at data obtained through an open-information site on the donations to the Canadian trucker convoy, we noticed something potentially peculiar: people in the North San Francisco Bay Area donated more money and in higher numbers than entire other states and countries. Mapping out the donations by state, and then by California county, allowed us to more thoroughly understand why that might be. Press Democrat | Tableau

Palestinian refugees

Introduction to Geospatial Humanities, Stanford University, Sept. 2018 - Dec. 2018

Our team sought to answer the questions: How and why is refugee status passed down from Palestinians to their children in camps in the Middle East? How are there still nearly 8 million Palestinian refugees worldwide, decades and lifetimes after the main displacements in 1948 and 1967? Using geospatial tools, we mapped Palestinian refugee populations throughout the Middle East to investigate the unique legal status of Palestinians who were dispossessed or born in limbo.

Global Urbanization and its Discontents

CESTA Jan. 2018 - Aug. 2018

With case studies of cities across the world, including Curitiba, Phoenix and Macau, our team used geospatial analysis and other digital/data tools to interrogate the relationships between urbanization and the production of poverty, vulnerability and displacement. Here, for example, we found that waterways and informal housing mapped almost 1-to-1 in Curitiba, suggesting that areas of flood risk are also those least regulated and incorporated.
