Research Profile

Hi! I’m Dr. Victoria Fast, an assistant professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Calgary. My field of research is broadly urban GIS, an interdisciplinary mix of geographic information science (GISci), human geography, and urban studies. 

I have specialized knowledge of spatial data, mapping, modelling, analysis and geovisualization, participatory GIS and volunteered geographic information fields within GISci. I apply that knowledge to the food-transportation-energy nexus, with an eye to supporting more progressive goals—urban and community driven food systems; active and accessible transportation systems; and community-engaged renewal energy mapping. 

My research is driven by the goal of ensuring all individuals—and especially pedestrians and inclusive of people with disabilities—have just and sustainable access to the built and digital environment unrestricted by social, economic and cultural forces, such as income, gender, race, and disability.
