Research Statement: Bailey is a PhD student in the department of Geography at the University of Florida. Before starting at UF, Bailey completed his master’s degree in environmental science and policy from the University of South Florida. During this time, Bailey investigated various aspects of food insecurity in the Tampa Bay region by conducting an accessibility analysis using several GIS techniques. Some of Bailey’s main interests are found in applying GIS to investigate real world problems. His passions include transportation, urban environments, and public health. Furthermore, he is especially interested in investigating the interaction of humans and the built environment. His future research hopes to focus on how spatial networks impact various aspects of public health, most notably food insecurity and infectious disease.

As a person of both Swedish and Spanish descent I come from a large blended family from a variety of backgrounds. At a young age I traveled to Cali, Colombia to visit my Abuela and in high school I lived in Stuttgart, Germany with my parents where they continue to live today. While English is my first and only fluent language, I have basic proficiency in conversational Spanish and German. I am always looking for friends to practice! My hobbies include traveling, hiking, and gardening.
