Anna Dmowska

Dr. Anna Dmowska works in the Faculty of Geography at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland. She obtained her PhD in 2012 from the Adam Mickiewicz University - the topic of her dissertation was "Spatial and temporal variability of surface water quality in postglacial catchments." She is interested in the application of statistics, data mining and GIS to geographical research. In Poznan she teaches classes in the fields of geoinformatics, geostatistics, spatial analysis, statistics, and geographical information systems. Currently her goals are to develop demographic grids of US Census Bureau data and a content-based search tool for them.

 Current projects:

  • developing high resolution population grids for the entire United States
  • developing racial diversity grids for the entire United States.
