Tenley Conway and the HOUSE Lab

Welcome to the Household-level Urban Socio-Ecology (HOUSE) LaboratoryDepartment of Geography, University of Toronto MississaugaTenley Conway and her lab group focus on research examining human-environmental  interactions in urban, suburban, and exurban landscapes.  We draw on insights from environmental geography, urban forestry, and landscape ecology to improve our understanding of relationships between people, policy, built form, and the physical environment in metropolitan areas.  The research is driven by questions surrounding the ecology of human-dominated landscapes and the efficacy of current management approaches.  We use a diversity of methodologies that often include GIS, remote sensing, statistical analyses, surveys, interviews, and historic data analysis.
