David Folch

My research focuses on spatial analytical methods, with a contextual interest in U.S. cities and neighborhoods. My approach to research sits at the intersection of geography, economics and computer science, which for me means merging geographic and economic methods with high performance computing and big data to address research questions with distinctly spatial manifestations. I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Behavioral Science at the University of Colorado at Boulder working on solutions to the challenge of high margins of error in small area U.S. Census data. I am a developer on the open source Python Spatial Analysis Library (PySAL).
