Interview: Dr. Andrea Gaughan, Geographic & Environmental Sciences

On this week’s program, your host, Justin Mog, folds up his map for a conversation with Dr. Andrea Gaughan, Professor of Geographic & Environmental Sciences at the University of Louisville. Listen in as we discuss her collaboration with the Office of Sustainability at Louisville Metro Government to conduct a Regional Climate Action Plan Survey to collect information on residents living in the greater Louisville area about their climate and sustainability priorities. As you heard on the January 29th edition of this show (Wfmp-forward-radio – Sustainability-now-sumedha-rao-gianna-bennett-regional-climate-action-planning-1-29-24), we are looking for a diverse set of responses from all around the 11-county area and you can complete the survey now at:…jp8EKAZU3A

We also discuss Andrea’s research interests, which include: Human-environment interactions; Earth observation and sustainable development; Land systems; Human population modeling; and Remote sensing and geospatial analysis. And we explore some of the courses Dr. Gaughan teaches, including:
- Earth Observation and Sustainability: The Human Planet (GEOG 525)
