Student Profile

Joey DiStefano

I’m a Masters student in the Geography Department here at Syracuse University. I’m working with Dr. Peng Gao on a historical GIS project of the Onondaga Creek watershed using fluvial geomorphology, geospacial methods, and urban water systems. I have a BS in Environmental Engineering from SU and a Masters of Education from Rhode Island College. Community geography and participatory GIS inspire me to use GIS in newer and better ways, and I’m excited to use it to help community members empower themselves.
