John is interested in the geographic dimensions of environmental politics and policy. As an undergraduate researcher, he used geospatial tools to connect the environmental history of North Georgia to observed changes in land use. As a Masters candidate, his research explored the politics of distributed solar energy in conservative-leaning states. He is also very interested in the application of geospatial tools to resource planning and climate change adaptation. John holds an MA in Energy and Resources from UC Berkeley and a BS in Environmental Spatial Analysis from the University of North Georgia.
