Alexandre Bevington is a Masters student at the University of Ottawa. His advisor in the Geography Department is Antoni Lewkowicz and is working on spatial modeling of permafrost conditions in Yukon. He will not be able to make AAG in Los Angeles since he will be attending a one month course at the University Center in Svalbard at that time.
John Brakeall is a Masters student at Florida International University. His advisor in the Geography Department is Jeffrey Onsted and is working on decision making related to wildfire-modeling in Mexico. He won’t be attending the AAG meeting this year since his thesis research is still in the early works so he doesn’t anticipate presenting his work until the summer.
Paulo Raposo is a Doctoral student at Penn State University. His advisor in the Geography Department is Cynthia Brewer and his proposed dissertation research focuses on spatial pattern comparison between raster datasets before and after generalization. Since he serves as the Secretary to the CaGIS board, he will be at the AAG meeting in LA.
