In my own words...
Winning the Esri Canada GIS scholarship has given me an extra boost with my own research in a challenging field. With very little occurrence records to work with for a variety of disease vectors, and particularly for mosquitoes that transmit the most debilitating and far-reaching disease on the planet, I hope that this is the beginning of bringing attention to the increasing need for proper data collection and analysis for malaria vectors and other vector species. This project was the most difficult I have yet attempted and I am honoured and grateful for receiving the Esri Canada GIS scholarship for it.
