Anagha Uppal is a PhD student in the Department of Geography. Her interests and research are situated at the intersection of agent-based modeling, geographic information science, and social phenomena (in particular, housing and land use, renewable energy, disadvantaged communities, emergency management, and animal welfare). She seeks to increase communication between geographic scientists and humanists on-the-ground and improve tools to enable their support of marginalized communities.
