 Dr. Christopher Prener (Ph.D., Northeastern University, 2015) is an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Saint Louis University (St. Louis, MO). He is an urban and medical sociologist with an interest in mixed methods research designs that incorporate spatial data. Chris’s current research focuses on the impact that population decline and segregation have had on St. Louis, Missouri across a number of outcomes, including vacancy, crime, and poor health. In addition to pursuing these questions, he actively maintains several open source software projects to make spatial research more reproducible and St. Louis data more accessible. Chris is also the maintainer of a COVID-19 tracking project for Missouri, focused on harmonizing data from various sources to create data visualizations of regional and statewide patterns in cases, deaths, and health disparities.
