I am a geographer interested in how and why the mainstreams of GIS and the digitization of geographical and cartographic understandings have developed in the manners that they have. I am equally interested in how alternative forms of geographical computation have emerged and will emerge, given other theoretical commitments and other social alliances. Across such approaches, what are the range of worlds that are possible to engage computationally and enact? What is at stake when worlds are represented as contained self-sufficient objects indexed within space as opposed to when phenomena (and spaces) emerge out of processes and relations? I examine these questions theoretically, historically, and concretely in engagements within particular fields of inquiry, including: geographical political economy, nature-society relations, globalization, critical physical geography, and the evolution and emergence of disease.
