Participatory GIS Research Receives National Award

I am pleased to share that my participatory GIS research has been recognized by the National Association for the Practice of Anthropology with a  Student Achievement Award for best original research in an applied context.

While conducting dissertation research in Dominica (2018-19), I engaged in a collaborative project with stakeholders in my research communities to build local capacity in geospatial technologies. Participants in this project learned how to collect and record spatial data and make digital maps using GIS technology. This effort is detailed in my forthcoming Practicing Anthropology article “GIS as a bridge across the digital divide: Engaging participatory methods to build capacity in research communities“.
