I have 20+ years of experience in GIS and spatial analysis of data. I have been working as GPL manager at Mt. Holyoke College since Summer 2006. Before, I was an assistant professor of GIS at Clark University, Worcester, MA. And before that, I taught and worked with GIS for different universities and public and private institutions in the Dominican Republic.
My interests are the application of geospatial technologies to natural resources management, although I have been involved with many other applications of GIS. Among the research I've been involved before coming to MHC include a study of hunger issues and food distribution in the Horn of Africa and in Worcester County, land use planning and land cover contrasts along the Haitian/Dominican Border, development of geospatial database for natural resources in the Dominican Republic, conservation planning in the Blackstone River watershed, etc.
