The Geosimulation of Socio-economic Resiliency of Communities in Newfoundland and Labrador.
The basis of my PhD research is to utilize Geographic Automata Systems to modeling the spatial dynamics of socio-economic vulnerability of community relative to their economic and demographic futures. The goal is to simulate the evolution of communities as they experience "demand shocks" to their system, such as the gentrification of the population or the collapse of a major industry or business.
Geographic Information Sciences, specifically geographic information systems, geosimulation, spatial modeling, spatial analysis, and geostatistics.
