Kasey Bolles, MS
Doctorate Student, Baylor University
Kasey Bolles is an eco-geomorphologist with expertise in remote sensing, geoinformatics, and integration and analysis of disparate data sets through stochastic modeling. Her research is centered on deciphering North American drought dynamics throughout the Late Holocene, associated impacts on public health, and implications for the future in light of climate change. Currently, she is investigating land-atmosphere interactions during the 1930’s Dust Bowl drought, as mediated by dust aerosols from both natural and anthropogenic surfaces across the U.S. Great Plains. Prior to beginning doctoral studies at Baylor University, Kasey explored landscape evolution in positions with the U.S. Forest Service and Washington State Department of Ecology. She holds an MS in Environmental Mapping from University College London and a BA in Anthropology and Sociology from Washington & Lee University.
