Hello, my name is Andrew Berens. I’m a masters student in the Department of Geosciences at Georgia State. I started at GSU in January of 2015 and joined the Student Innovation Fellowship Program in August of 2015.
At GSU I am focusing on geography and GIS. I’m currently working with Dr. Diem on my thesis. Together we are gathering gamma emission data throughout DeKalb County in the hopes of determining if gamma emission can function as a proxy for radon potential.
With the SIF program I will be working with the mapping and digital pedagogy groups. I am especially looking forward to working with the archival maps and photos in the ATL mapping and Atlanta photo projects respectively.
Throughout my time with SIF I will be posting general things, things specific to my SIF work, and various maps I have in my collection or that I create. Hopefully this blog will give you an insight into my work and geographic work in general.
