Aayush is a first-year Master of Science Student with the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. He is interested in healthy city design and bicycle access, focusing on disadvantaged populations. Aayush has experience using R and SAS statistical coding software, ArcGIS, and Python. In addition, he has utilized the Canadian Community Health Survey to implement exploratory research, such as undergoing multivariable linear and logistic regression. Aayush is now researching land use and inequities in the context of Surrey, BC, as it pertains to 15-minute neighbourhoods, using mapping and community engagement. A 15-minute neighbourhood is a neighbourhood where all essential services are within a 15-minute walk, cycle, or transit from one’s home. He looks to add the lived experiences of the community to his analysis to understand what Surrey residents consider essential to have in their 15-minute neighbourhoods and whether his analysis and mapping match their lived experiences.
