I am a researcher specializing in the Vancouver renter market. My cartographic, data analysis, and urban planning experience make me the perfect choice for your report writing projects and keynote speaker presentations.
As a member of the Canadian Cartographic Association (CCA) and the Canadian Association of Geographers (CAG), I stay current with innovative research. I recently presented research at CAG, Simon Fraser University “Innovations in Research” where I explained my GIS cartographic map illustrating renter vulnerabilities based on mobility (forced moves) compared with income levels.
I build your demographics using cluster analysis in Gephi and NVivo to help with your qualitative and mixed methods data visualization. Some examples are coding the global phenomenon of the Black Panther Black community empowerment using YouTube videos. With NVivo I take your interview collection data and create word association cluster analysis to illustrate what key points those respondents have in common or in which direction you should move to capture those all-important demographics. Furthermore, as a statistician I use powerful tools such as GitHub coding and Canadian census or Statistics Canada Housing Surveys to illustrate mobility trends and how to create resilience strategies based on citizenry empowerment.
Urban Planning Researcher
I drill down to the personal housing rental level urban built environment to examine the unique aspects of ‘Vancouverism’ to help prevent forced moves for those vulnerable populations—the working poor—the majority of whom live in BC, according to the Statistics Canada 2016 census (refer to my Pressbook, The 6th Eviction). The working poor are working people whose incomes fall below a given poverty line due to low-income jobs and low familial household income. These are people who spend at least 27 weeks in a year working or looking for employment but remain under the poverty threshold.
Report Planning and Writing
My skills in both human geography (BA University of British Columbia Human Geography, 2018) and sociology (Sociology 400 Student Directed Study, in which I detailed a report to Vancouver City Hall for the Hogan’s Alley Society (HAS) based on symbolic interactionalism making a case for a Black Community Centre land trust run and owned by HAS) enables me to take real-time interviews of your respondents/clients and create meaningful, impactful personal stories into reports which gain those financial networks your non-profit organization requires.
