Research and Teaching Interests

Dr. Stephanie Rogers’ research has focused on the application of geospatial methods and techniques in interdisciplinary research projects to solve spatial problems using traditional and new technologies, while advancing the field of Geographic Information Science. Fields of interest have included: physical geography, glacial archaeology, social sciences, logistics, environmental sciences, critical GIS, and geographic data collection. Dr. Rogers currently teaches courses in physical geography, geographic information systems (GIS), and GIS applications and attempts to provide both global and local perspectives in course activities. Current research focuses on geographic data collection and optimization using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and systems (UAS).
