I am a PhD student who in the last one year has been exploring unorthodox sources of geospatial data such as social media applications, evaluating their quality, and using them to conduct spatio-temporal analysis. My first paper (https://doi.org/10.5194/agile-giss-1-19-2020) tracked how Hurricane Dorian (2019) was captured on GDELT (a news repository for worldwide events) and Twitter. The overarching aim of my research is to explore and present alternative sources of geospatial data by examining their quality. I look forward to developing better geospatial data quality management products.

I’m an amateur art enthusiast and I enjoy spending time communing with nature.
