I am a professor in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning at Arizona State University. My research and teaching interests include open source spatial analysis, spatial econometrics, exploratory space-time data analysis and regional science. I am the creator of the package STARS: Space-Time Analysis of Regional Systems and lead developer of PySAL: A Python Library for Spatial Analysis. Much of this work is carried out within the GeoDa Center for Geospatial Analysis and Computation. On this site you can learn more about my research, teaching, professional and personal interests.
I was honored to be asked to give a keynote at the Open Source Geospatial Research and Education Symposium in Yverdon-le-Bains, Switzerland.
Prior to the OSGRS meetings, I gave a talk as part of the GIScience Colloquum at the Department of Geography, University of Zurich.
I gave a talk at SciPy 2012 on PySAL. The last SciPy I attended was 3 years ago and I think the community has grown by leaps and bounds. There is a lot of great work happening with Python and this conference showcases this very nicely.
