Interview for UCI’s Humanities Commons Graduate Student Spotlight for March

I was recently interviewed by my school for their graduate student spotlight. Answers to questions which asked me to define the inspiration behind my research on geospatial technologies and disasters, the greatest impact on my academic career, big changes in the technology I’m studying, and my decision to attend graduate school can be found here, on UCI’s Humanities Commons website. In formulating my answers, I realized how instrumental living in Japan (back in 2007-2009) was to my experience today!
