Julie VALLÉE

Since 2010 : Associate scientist CNRS
Laboratory Géographie-Cités

Send a message

I am conducting research devoted to spatial mechanisms of health inequalities in urban areas, notably in Paris and Montreal.
I aim to better understand how people experience their neighbourhood and their city, how they access urban resources and how variability in place experiences and in resources accessibility may translate into inequalities in health.

PROJECT COORDINATION

Mobiliscope : Social segregation around the clock in metropolitan areas
Mobiliscope is a geovisualization tool for interactive exploration of social segregation around the clock in metropolitan areas. Using large travel survey (EGT 2010), the Mobiliscope displays maps and segregation indices in the Paris metropolitan area over the 24 h a day.

RelatHealth : A relational approach to place effect on health in cities
In Paris (France) and Montreal (Canada) we propose to adopt more relational approach to place effects on health considering people’ place experiences (though daily mobility and perceived neighborhood) . The project aims at exploring the spatial logics of intra-urban inequalities in health through the following question: in which extent spatial accessibility to resources and social interactions– that do not only depend on the geographic localization of resources and population but also result of people’s place experiences – are involved in intra-urban inequalities in health?
