All courses for every first-year Science student will be delivered online this fall. A limited number of students in their second, third and fourth years will return to campus for part of the semester.

The School of Geography & Earth Sciences will be renamed the School of Earth, Environment & Society effective July 6th, 2020.

Antonio Paez is associate professor in the School of Earth, Environment & Society at McMaster University. Recent work includes studies on accessibility, spatial filtering, aging and mobility, spatial analysis of qualitative variables, transportation and social exclusion, the influence of the built and social environments on travel behavior, social networks and decision making, telework adoption, and blood donor behavior and trends. Dr. Paez has published widely, and is author or co-author of over 50 papers, many appearing in leading international journals, including Environment and Planning A and B, Urban Studies, Geographical Analysis, Journal of Geographical Systems, Journal of Transport Geography, Transportation, Transportation Research A, Papers in Regional Science, International Journal of Health Geographics, Growth and Change, and Social Networks. He also co-edited the book Progress in Spatial Analysis: Methods and Applications published in 2009 as part of Springer's series Advances in Spatial Science. He currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Geographical Systems, and sits on the editorial board of Environment and Planning A
