"Where to Say What: Can Geography Inform Communication Policy?"

**About the speaker**

With a Ph.D. in Geography from University of Minnesota, MPhil in Population Studies, and a M.A. in Urban Development from Jawaharlal Nehru University, India Dr. Debs Ghosh is currently an Associate Professor of Geography at UConn. As a health geographer, Debs’ research and teaching are primarily focused on the reciprocal relationship between ‘place’ and health, where place is a multidimensional unit, connecting people (vulnerable populations), things (facilitators and barriers), and environment. Central to this is her diverse yet complementary skill set including GIS, spatial statistics, social network analysis, mHealth (mobile-health), and more recently, designs of randomized controlled trials. Dr. Ghosh’s ultimate goal is to conduct ‘spatial behavioral interventions’ where research findings are translated to practice.
