Mapping Our Changing World

Instructor Information (Ellie)


My name is Elham Nasr-Azadani; you can call me Ellie. I am a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in the Geography Department and a member of the Riparia research center. My research mainly focuses on engaging Landscape Visualization in the form of Immersive Experiences for competency-based sustainability education. We have various ways to define competencies, but as for sustainability, it is a combination of knowledge with skill and attitude, which enables individuals to act and behave concerning the environment. My research will be conducted in the Spring Creek watershed as a smaller section of the Chesapeake Bay. Building competency among stakeholders of this watershed, I expect to achieve better implementation of practices on Earth, which eventually leads to pollution reduction in the Spring Creek watershed and the whole Bay. To find out more about me and my research you can visit my website.
