Geoff Fouad is interested in all things spatial analysis. His career thus far has focused on the spatial analysis of water resources, particularly the prediction of water availability in streams and aquifers. This work has involved the use of geographic information systems (GIS), computer programming, machine learning, data visualization, and environmental modeling. Geoff also has a related interest in remote sensing from
satellites and aircrafts for the monitoring and analysis of environmental systems.

As the GIS Program Director and University Cartographer, Geoff is continually expanding his knowledge of spatial analysis to other fields, such as anthropology, criminal justice, and marine science. He is also developing his own research program on water resource modeling under future scenarios.

Geoff teaches a variety of courses on GIS and geography. When not teaching or researching, Geoff enjoys hanging out with his British bulldog, Boleyn, and wife, Chelsea.
