Sergio Rey is a Professor in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning at Arizona State University. Rey is the creator and lead developer of the open source package STARS: Space-Time Analysis of Regional Systems as well as PySAL: A Python Library for Spatial Analysis. He is a fellow of the Spatial Econometrics Association, and currently President of the Western Regional Science Association. Since 1999 has served as the editor of the International Regional Science Review, and beginning July 2014 will be the editor of Geographical Analysis.
Rey teaches courses in geocomputation and spatial data analysis, and has presented numerous workshops on PySAL at scientific conferences. His research interests focus on the development, implementation, and application of advanced methods of spatial and space-time data analysis. Substantive foci include regional inequality, convergence and growth dynamics as well as neighborhood change, segregation dynamics, spatial criminology and industrial networks. Recent and current research projects include an analysis of the relationships between spatial linkages and urban economic dynamics (EDA), flexible geospatial visual analytics and simulation technologies to enhance criminal justice decision support systems (NIJ), spatial analytical framework for examining community sex offender residency issues over space and time (NSF), and cyberGIS software integration for sustained geospatial innovation (NSF).
