The AAG welcomes a new intern for the spring term to the Association’s headquarters in Washington D.C.
Tunaggina Khan recently graduated from George Mason University with a master’s degree in Geographic and Cartographic Sciences. She has studied remote sensing, advanced GIS, quantitative analysis and many related subjects. Khan has expertise in scientific research and analytical thinking. Her thesis focused on the uncertainty of the ZIP code as a polygon in spatial analysis.
Her geographical interests are in the application of geography and spatial analysis relating to daily life and different fields of study, including transportation, health, and behavioral geographies. She hopes to pursue a Ph.D. in geography after her time at the AAG.
During her internship, she will be supporting AAG staff on a number of projects and activities, including departmental data, careers and jobs in geography, the Annual Meeting, research on geospatial locational privacy, and much more.
