Research Interests

Keun conducts behavioral research through spatial data analytics and digital technologies. Ultimately, his research aims to understand how to create healthy, just, and resilient cities through smart growth and urban nature. Specific research agendas include 1) Spatial research on smart growth (compact, mixed-use, walkable, and transit-supportive developments) and its behavioral outcomes, 2) Technology-driven behavioral research in public space (e.g., drone), and 3) Environmental justice and accessibility in urban nature.
