Elderly/Disabled Public Transit Use
This map is a geostatistical analysis of clusters of bus riders weighted against the combined elderly and disabled populations of census blocks.
This map was designed to illustrate the concentration of elderly and disabled residents in Co-Op City, hopefully encouraging the MTA to invest in more low-floor buses for Eastchester Depot.
Bad Urban Planning in the Bronx
Asthma and poverty are far too common in the Bronx. I subscribe to the theory that most of these problems come from bad urban planning choices made decades ago. Highways such as the Cross Bronx Expressway, in addition to rapid industrialization and restriction to waterfronts and open space, seem to have decided the fate of many Bronxites.
MAPPING THE BRONX
As a student of Lehman College and Bronx resident, much of my cartographic work has focused on the mainland borough. Visualizing the Bronx' problems helps point out solutions and illustrate them to community members, politicians, and other stakeholders.
Road Salt Case Study
This map, a hypothetical project developed for one of my courses, shows the area surrounding lakes in Katonah and the streets that are most likely to drain road salt into the watershed.
Preliminary Map, Bee-Line
This map, a preliminary map of my Bee-Line bus and retail corridor project, shows the routes and the retail land use parcels they pass.
MAPPING WESTCHESTER COUNTY
Although I'm a native Bronxite, much of my time has been spent in Westchester County. My final project of my graduate career will focus on optimizing the Bee-Line bus system to better serve retail and entertainment workers in the southern portion of the county.

Soil Drainage in Southeast Asia
A lab example from one of my classes shows a study of soil drainage in the southeast portion of the continent.
MAPPING THE WORLD
Cartography can take a map reader practically anywhere, with the right conditions and the right presentation.
