As Associate Director of Social and Behavioral Science Applications, Aaron identifies and facilitates new collaborations between the Center and social science researchers across NC State, and advances geospatial community engagement with an equity lens. His work considers how, where and why public built environments impact health behaviors such as physical activity and recreation. He develops crowdsourcing approaches and uses emerging sensor technologies to study and visualize the interaction between built environments and community health behaviors. He is currently using webcams, web apps, GPS, and accelerometers in data collection. Other interests include infrastructure that supports workplace health, park use and accessibility, and geospatial decision support systems.
