I'm an aspiring geographer, currently working on a PhD. I'd be a better student if I wasn't so often distracted by non-academic pursuits like swing dancing and getting lost in the mountains. My current research interests are a bit all over the map (not a geography pun), but I seem to be narrowing in on trying to find better ways to reduce fugitive methane emissions from the oil and gas industry.
Post-BSc, I spent a year traveling through South Asia, hitchhiking from Istanbul to London, and cycling 2500 km from Winnipeg to Montreal. [MSc happened here]. Post-MSc, I rode my bike around Italy, the Balkans, and Eastern Europe for 8 months or so. For the next few years it's PhD mode, something I swore I'd never do. But so far, it has been awesome.
