EH MATTERS Internship description:

The EH MATTERS intern will gain training and mentoring on spatial thinking, hands-on spatial data sampling and handling, and use of GIS analysis and visualization for a deeper understanding of environmental problems in our community. Projects will be developed upon interest and skill level. Basic knowledge of GIS (e.g. SSCI 165 or 265 or 301) or statistics is preferred; students without either background will be considered if interested in learning and developing these essential spatial science skills during the internship. 

Other interns that Wu supervises include: undergraduate (B.S. in GeoDesign) and graduate students (M.S. in GIST; Ph.D. in Population, Health and Place) in research on the issues of environmental pollution, their health outcomes and underlying injustice at various spatial and temporal scales.
