Kristina Glass

Pronouns: she/her

Kristina Glass is a current masters student in Environmental Data Science at the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at UC Santa Barbara. Holding a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies, a Minor in Public Policy, and a Certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) from Temple University, her interests are focused in the politics of the environment and how they impact global communities. She found a passion in data science through studying GIS and through participation in a Fulbright Mitacs Globalink internship aiding in research on urban greening and heat related death in the Greater Toronto Area. Through this research internship, she discovered the significance of climate modeling systems to help tackle environmental issues both in metropolitan areas and in wider communities. Her data science interests are centered in developing accessible data visualizations to effectively communicate research with a broad audience and in bringing clarity to data findings in scientific and academic writing and research. She hopes to use her education from Bren to increase the accessibility of science communication and to aid in her future study of interactions between humans and the environment.
