The SAUSy Story

The SAUSy Lab, (Spatial Analysis of Urban Systems Lab) is a collaborative research lab that uses advanced spatial analysis to understand how cities affect society in the 21st century.

Led by Professors Michael Widener and Steven Farber, current research projects are focused on issues of accessibility, transportation, urban health, social interaction, and food environments. Currently, funding is provided by a variety of SSHRC, CIHR, and Connaught Fund research grants.

If you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree (MA, PhD), completing your postdoc, or joining us temporarily as a visiting scholar in the lab, please contact Widener or Farber directly. Please note, admission is competitive and we will only be able to accommodate those who have projects closely related to on-going work.
