To understand the interchange between social and physical spaces, I use a variety of geospatial and statistical methods in ArcMap and MatLab software platforms.  More  specifically I am merging econometrics, spatial statistics, cluster modeling and network analysis to study the cyberspace.  Currently, I am using Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) to determine variability in spatial thresholds for commonalities and communicative pairs in a large social network.  The aim of this research is to better understand the development and expansion of our online communities and the homogeneity this imposes on the filtering and ranking of day-to-day internet searches.
