My work focuses upon the social aspects of geographic information systems including the uneven development of geographic information networks within government agencies and their connections/disconnections within indigenous communities in North America. More recently, I have begun to position my work along an interface between indigenous knowledge systems, the geosciences, and digital technologies like GIS, in hopes of determining how culture like language, storytelling, education, and performance influence the use and understanding of geographic information.
