Geoffrey Jacquez (MS, Ph.D.) has over 20 years experience as an active researcher in cancer epidemiology and geography. He has been developing novel statistical methods for analyzing case-control data for mobile individuals, and the assessment of space-time interaction for diseases with long latency in mobile populations. Most recently he has developed techniques for evaluating the impact of geocoding positional error on spatial analysis, and the accuracy assessment of residential histories data.
