I am a second-year PhD student in Geography and a trainee in the graduate training program in Population Studies at the Minnesota Population Center. I am interested in applying and developing new ways in which GIS, spatial analysis and remote sensing help us study human-environmental processes. My interests include population studies, climate change, migration, and reproductive health.
