The fellowship program was designed to support the awardee’s design and research for a public engagement campaign to highlight Spatial Ecology’s growth as an international geoinformatics education resource and attract students and professionals to the versatility of open source geographic information systems and technology. Nick is committed to diversifying the user base of Spatial Ecology’s online learning resources.
He is currently pursuing a graduate certificate at City University of New York and is a GIS Specialist working for the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, U.S.A., and intends to draw members of the scientific community to Spatial Ecology’s resources. Nick will be managing Spatial Ecology’s social media accounts and continuing to update our followers about the summer school’s progress. Our new Social Media Fellow encourages our followers to share our Twitter and new Instagram account and stay tuned for updates throughout the summer.
