Senior GIS Analyst, Built Environment and Health Research Group
James Quinn is the Senior Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Analyst with the Built Environment and Health (BEH) Research Group in the Mailman School of Public Health, Department of Epidemiology, at Columbia University. At BEH, James conducts medical geography research using spatial modeling techniques. His position requires the ability to make connections between the changes in the physical, economic, and social environments, and evaluate their effect on the development of changes in physical activity, patterns of obesity, and health risk. James works on numerous grant-funded research projects simultaneously where I am responsible for the acquisition, management, development, and linkage of retrospective and modern spatial databases measuring neighborhood characteristics with individual-level data. His duties require non-routine analysis, research and follow-through, and writing and synthesis in a multidisciplinary team setting.
