I majored in Physical/Environmental Geography at Penn State and graduated with two minors, Climatology and GIS, in 2008. I then went to Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania for my MS in Geoenvironmental Studies and graduated from there in 2010. In my time at Kent State, my interests have migrated toward more social/cultural dimensions of environmental awareness, focusing on everyday interactions with weather (ABD Oct 2012).
Dissertation: Situational analysis and social media: Applications in cultural-climatological research
