Understanding our environment
across space and time
crossing boundaries


I have use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to map and model many different phenomena across space and time. 
My interest in geography started at an early age through my exposure to different environments but also through a unique education in Kenya. While at a school (Tigoni Academy for Girls) with a very unique headmaster, who believed that you learned just as much, if not more outside of the classroom as you do inside, we were bundled into a cattle truck and exposed to all aspects of geography throughout Kenya. During our many field trips we learned about the flora and fauna within a variety of unique habitats ranging from warm tropical coral reefs along the coast to the lush highlands and cool high altitudes of Mt Kenya and Kilimanjaro. Along the way we climbed mountains and volcanoes in and around the rift valley; learned about geothermal power, different forms of erosion and glaciation and cultures (see map). Having experienced these diverse habitats helps me understand the environments I am continually modelling through my work.
