My name is Michael Knotts. I am currently a Senior at Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University. My major is Urban and Regional Planning and my minor is Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Following graduation, I plan to obtain a masterís degree in Emergency Management or Disaster Prevention. With these degrees, I hope to one day work for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

 

During my experience, I conducted a study on urbanization in the city of Nanjing. I used GIS to assess land use and urbanization trends from the years of 1995 to 2011. After this study was completed, I gained a stronger understanding of several research techniques and GIS applications.
