David C. Folch


I am an assistant professor in the Department of Geography, Planning and Recreation at Northern Arizona University. My research focuses on the data, measures and algorithms that support empirical research and public policy decisions. He uses geocomputational approaches to study issues of demographic change in U.S. cities and neighborhoods. His work has involved measuring residential segregation and social vulnerability, and spatial approaches for reducing uncertainty in American Community Survey estimates. He holds degrees in Geography and Economics and is an associate editor of the journal Papers in Regional Science.
