GIS, Remote Sensing, Movement Ecology, Trajectory Analysis (Human and Animal)


I received my M.S. in Geography from the University of Montana with an emphasis in GIS and Cartography and my B.S. in Geography from Northern Illinois University (NIU). My Master’s thesis analyzed the border history of north-central Montana’s Rocky Boy Reservation and whether it’s bounded location was suitable for an agricultural economy. You can read my thesis here and if you look at this image, you can get an idea of how it was written.
