Ben Williamson

Graduate, Department of Geography

I’m a doctoral student in Geography, with interests in human geography, environmental politics, technology, and interdisciplinarity. Before returning to graduate school, I was the Executive Director of a Wyoming-based non-profit focused on supporting innovative social and ecological research. Prior, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Ecology from the University of Montana and a Master of Environmental Management degree from the Yale School of the Environment. As a PhD student with Dr. Matt Fry, I’ll be studying the extent to which digital technologies lead to better equity and ecological outcomes in urban forestry contexts. My research will focus on the intersection of environmental change, knowledge production, and emerging technologies.
