Perver uses geospatial analytics to improve our understanding of how natural and built environments contribute to active living, health, quality of life, and sustainability. She develops immersive virtual environments to understand how urban, neighborhood, and open space environments support physical activity, psychological restoration, safety, park use, and quality of urban life. Other interests include 3-D city modeling for urban planning, urban design, innovative public participation methods, and cartographic design.
