I am a doctoral student in the Department of Geography and Urban Studies at Temple University. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Geography and Public Law from the University of Hamburg, Germany, and a Professional Science Master’s degree in GIS from Temple University.
My main interests are focused on the implementation of GIS and Remote Sensing in topics related to the interaction between human activities and environment; transformation of spatial arrangement and its effects on health and behavior; and sustainable urban development.
Since 2014, I have been participating in a project related to analysis of vegetation patterns and species monitoring on mountainous summer pastures in Kyrgyzstan during the transformation of economic and political systems in post-soviet time. Currently, I am working on a research project aimed at elucidating social and environmental risk factors for transmission of mosquito born diseases in the Eastern US.
