I am an aspiring cartographer from the San Francisco Bay Area, currently pursing a MSc in Geography with Dr. Andreas Christen and the Urban Climate Group. My work is about the cartographic process—the acquisition, mining, and representation of geographic information for maps. I am interested in mapmaking as a medium for practicing and communicating science and focused on developing interactions between people, their space, and their data. Specifically, I am fascinated in mapping the feedbacks between the social and biophysical landscapes in cities and curious to understand how those feedbacks manifest a distinct urban climate. My thesis work is focused on developing methods of monitoring and mapping carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at the city scale and is inspired by open source resources and technology, crowd-sourcing, and the “Smart City”.

I have a B.A. in Geography/Environmental Studies from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with specialization in Geospatial Information Systems and Technology. My previous work also includes a research assistantship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Through TerreWEB, I hope to use cartography to bridge the gaps in science communication and draw exciting new connections between design and the media arts and the environmental/climate sciences.

Thesis Topic: Developing methods of monitoring and mapping carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions at the city scale and is inspired by open source resources and technology, crowd-sourcing, and the “Smart City”.
