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.

Geoff teaches a variety of GIS courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students are often at the center of Geoff’s research, and Geoff encourages students to contact him about their research interests, and how the various computational tools that Geoff specializes in can help students answer their research questions.
