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 teaches a variety of GIS courses, and has a growing research program on wetland hydrology.
