Two new interns have joined the AAG staff this summer! The AAG would like to welcome Eliana and Jacob to the organization.

In her spare time, Eliana likes to make post-it art, read murder mystery novels, and watch stand up comedy.

Jacob Tafrate is a senior at the George Washington University pursuing degrees in Geography and International affairs, with a minor in Geographic Information Systems. He is most interested in Arctic geography and the application of GIS techniques to further understand the unequal impacts of climate change. After graduation Jacob hopes to continue his Geography education in graduate school. In his free time, he enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with friends and family. While Jacob is originally from West Hartford, Connecticut his favorite place in the world is New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
