ABOUT ME

Committed to creativity and hard-work

After completing my Bachelor's degree in Computer Information Systems at North Carolina Weslyean College, I became interested in GIS and enrolled in the Graduate Certificate Program at NCSU. I wanted to continue and advance my skills in GIS by pursuing Master of Geospatial Information Science and Technology (MGIST) degree. I graduated in December 2016. Prior to my Bachelor's degree, I completed an Associate Degree in Web Technologies at Wake Technical Community College. I also have a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering from Bangalore University, India.

 

In addition to the required MGIST coursework, I further engaged with fellow members of the Center for Geospatial Analytics in NCSU by joining the NCSU instructional staff as a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I assisted GIS 520, GIS 515, and  GIS 610 (ePortfolio) for two semesters (Spring 2016, Fall 2016), My work included facilitating weekly lessons, including communicating expectations, answering questions, and grading assignments. I also monitored help forums in person and through various digital media. Through  these additional opportunities within the department, my skills have improved and extend beyond basic understanding of GIS. In addition to GIS skills, I have more than four years experience in web development. I hope to find a fulfilling career, and serve the community.
