Robert Shepard, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Geography, University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Robert Shepard, assistant professor of geography at UNL, led the first presentation of the Fall 2021 Methodology Applications Series presentation Nov. 12.

His presentation, “Space Scale and Site: The Limits and Lies in Our Understanding of Residential Segregation," covers some of the ways geographic scale impacts measures of demographic evenness, isolation and clustering, illustrating how much of the scholarship on residential segregation has been limited — and even entirely misleading.
