Mei-Po Kwan's COVID-19 Research Papers



I have conducted research on the COVID-19 pandemic in 4 main areas: (1) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on people's mobility; (2) uncertainties in the assessment of COVID-19 risk; (3) people's privacy concerns for and acceptance of COVID-19 control measures that harness location information; and (4) influences of built and social environmental factors on the space-time dynamics of COVID-19.
