I am a Professor in the Department of Geography at Florida State University. My research and teaching interests are in transportation, geographic information systems and science, urban-regional analysis, and sustainability.  My current research is in the following interrelated areas:

  • Urban commuting and land use relationships
  • Aging populations and their transportation needs
  • Measuring accessibility to goods, health services, and opportunities
  • Optimization and network analysis in GIS
  • Disaster relief, evacuation, and sheltering
  • Space-time modeling and mobile object tracking

I am actively recruiting new graduate students with overlapping research interests.  Students wishing to learn more about graduate studies and research opportunities at FSU may wish to contact me at mhorner@fsu.edu.
