Caitlin Kontgis is a PhD student in the Geography department and a recipient of the National Science Foundation CHANGE-IGERT fellowship. Mentored by Annemarie Schneider, Caitlin's research interests focus on applying remote sensing techniques to investigating how human populations interact with their surrounding environments. Specifically, Caitlin is currently researching land use change and patterns of urban expansion in northern Vietnam.

Prior to enrolling at UW Madison, Caitlin spent a summer working at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California using MISR satellite data to assess air quality in the Los Angeles basin. She also earned a Master's degree in Environmental Health Sciences at UC Berkeley and a Bachelor's degree in Geography from UC Santa Barbara. In her spare time, Caitlin greatly enjoys traveling, SCUBA diving, cooking, walking her dogs and spending time with family.
