Dr. McKenzie is currently accepting graduate students for the Fall of 2017. If you are interested in joining the team, the Center for Geospatial Information Science and the Department of Geographical Sciences at the University of Maryland, College Park, send us an email and fill out an application. We have a bunch of new and existing projects on the go and are always looking for motivated students to join the team.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Geo-privacy
e.g., How can the information we share online be used to locate us?

Credibility of spatial information
e.g., How credible are Yelp reviews?

Place and Space
e.g., How do different people/cultures/groups understand the concept of place?

Knowledge Representation
e.g., What role do place/space play in how we conceptualize information and knowledge?

If any of these topics (or related topics) are of interest to you, please contact Dr. McKenzie at gmck@umd.edu. Student funding is available and applications are due December 15, 2016.
