As the GIS Specialist at Smith College, Jon directs the Spatial Analysis Lab, which supports classes across the curriculum as well as faculty and student scholarship. He studies how decisions made in the political economy manifest themselves upon the landscape. He is particularly interested in visualizing partitioned, regulated space that unintentionally marginalizes individuals and communities. Jon is also tinkering with kite, balloon, and small-unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAV) platforms to capture aerial imagery for a variety of mapping and analysis projects. He is also learning how to ride a unicycle.
