Using GIS, visual analytics, and spatiotemporal modeling, Dr. Rybarczyk examines the utility of Big Data for gaining insight into the causal mechanisms that influence travel patterns and urban dynamics. In particular, his research sets out to provide a fuller understanding of â€œwhatâ€ and â€œwhereâ€ micro-scale conditions affect human sentiment and hence wayfinding ability, movement patterns, and travel mode-choices.
