Don Lafreniere is Associate Professor of Geography and GIS and Department Chair in the Industrial Heritage and Archaeology Program at Michigan Technological University, USA.  His research interests centre on creating public-participatory GIS methodologies for recreating historical industrial environments and spatializing populations.  He has published extensively on topics such as 19th century social mobility, segregation, industrial worker migration, industrial heritage, and daily lives in industrial cities.  His recent work includes creating historical spatial data infrastructures for industrial heritage preservation, interpretation, and education and using historical geospatial methods for uncovering the relationships between the built and social environments and life course health and wellbeing.
