The Geography Society pairs with LAUNCH to offer a colloquium on Wednesday April 25th at 4pm in GRG 102. Free pizza while it lasts! Geography professor, Dr. Eugenio Arima, will be presenting.
The main topic Dr. Arima focuses on is Land Change Science and Remote Sensing Analysis. His PhD attempted to address the extremely difficult conceptual problem known as the “Steiner Tree” by studying the access trails loggers built to harvest trees in the Amazon.

Dr. Eugenio Arima is a new Assistant Professor in the Department of Geography and the Environment. He will informally talk about his academic background, current research projects supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and NASA, his field work activities in the Brazilian Amazon, including a recent trip along the Transamazon Highway, and undergraduate research opportunities.
Anyone is invited. Note the room change to GRG 102. I hope many of you can make it!
