Kendra Thompson-Dyck
I am a doctoral candidate in sociology at the University of Arizona. I recently moved to Spokane, Washington and am thrilled to have this dynamic conference in my own backyard! I am engaged in research projects that integrate spatial analysis and GIS mapping to examine community well-being. My dissertation examines whether access to supportive community organizations reduces juvenile recidivism in the Phoenix-metro area.

I'm interested in learning more about how people are using GIS technology in applied interdisciplinary research and in local communities to improve access to services. I am also exploring career opportunities in the Inland Northwest that integrate GIS analysis to address community well-being.
