My name is John Wall and I am a Ph. D. student in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University studying Earth Science under Del Bohnenstiehl (research website) and Karl Wegmann (research website). Within Earth Sciences, my interests include (karst) geomorphology, near-surface geophysics and geoarchaeology. My current research project looks at cataloging closed depressions (e.g. sinkholes) from high-resolution topographic data (e.g. Light Detection and Ranging [LiDAR]).
Previously at NCSU, I obtained my Master of Geospatial Information Science and Technology degree. Within GIS technologies, my primary interests focus on data organization and management along with data visualization. During my time at NCSU, I have pursued these interests by taking various courses focusing on geospatial analytics, data visualization, programming and remote sensing. Aspects of these courses are highlighted within my GIS Portfolio.
