Kacey Johnson Pham is a Master’s Student in the GIST Program at the University of Southern California. She works as a GIS Analyst at International Medical Corps (IMC), a humanitarian nonprofit organization in Los Angeles, CA, where she is helping to implement GIS for the purposes of mapping where IMC works and other relevant operational information. Until recently, she was a volunteer at the Page Museum in Los Angeles, California where she compiled a GIS database of fossil locations at the La Brea Tar Pits. Previously, she has volunteered as a Hydrographic Survey Technician on five NOAA expeditions off the Southeast US coast where she assisted with multibeam survey operations and created deep-sea coral habitat maps. She has also worked as a GIS Technician at the Lowcountry Hazards Center in Charleston, SC where she updated rail and road data for disaster preparedness studies. Kacey is in her third semester of the GIST Program and expects to receive her degree in 2015. She is interested in the use of GIS for paleontological research, humanitarian response, and for communicating science to the public.
