Health, Poverty, & Place


Accra, Ghana


I worked on a team led by Dr. John Weeks to map the neighborhood ecology of Accra, Ghana.

We were able to access local surveys and build a variety of map products (digital, wall, Thomas Guide-style bound book). These visuals helped fieldworkers re-located and interview women for a longitudinal health study looking at poverty and neighborhood structure.

My colleagues and I published a paper documenting the findings of this mapping project here.
