M.S. in Geography He/him/his


Griffin received a B.S. in Biology and Natural Resources Management from Green Mountain College in 2018. After a summer internship with the NASA DEVELOP National Program, he became inspired by the power of remote sensing to help scientists understand our environment and how it is responding to climate change. After a few more years in the workforce, he finally decided to pursue a M.S. in Geography here at the University of Nevada, Reno. He is working with Dr. Anne Nolin in the Computational Mountain Studies research group to better understand snow hydrology and snow sampling site representativeness in a changing world.
