Daniel Casey


Daniel Casey is a senior government and sociology major and is generally a wannabe geographer. Broadly interested in social-environmental connections, he is currently engaged in a couple of research projects using GIS and other geographic tools. One such study investigates the effect of residential segregation on the exposure of different racial groups to green space and urban areas. Another project looks at how multi-scalar processes like urbanization, trade flows and the like combine to provoke land cover change in the Mexican Yucatan. Beyond research, he works for the Charles Center as a Peer Scholarship Advisor and is the coach of an under-10 boys' basketball team. After graduation, Daniel hopes to continue his adventures in geography and maybe one day develop a (literal) sense of direction.
