Amber is a senior, undergraduate student at the University of Central Florida. She is currently studying Environmental Studies with an emphasis on Urban Planning and Policy, as well as a certificate in GIS. Amber is beyond excited to work with the GIS Citizen Science team and wants to gain more hands-on experience with GIS projects within a community-based setting. She was originally introduced to GIS technology in an environmental research and field studies academy in high school and fell in love with it. Amber believes GIS has endless possibilities for the future of science and technology. She stated “I’ve always been a very environmentally oriented person both in the classroom and out in field. I always strive to get involved with anything possible to help the surrounding community and educate people on the changes occurring around us. I know GIS work is becoming extremely popular in the environmental field and I cannot wait to share the knowledge and research I gain while working with the GIS team with the surrounding community.
