Environmental Exposure and Child Development: Evidence from the Krogman Growth Study
Certificate(s): Gender and Sexuality Studies
I contributed to several projects with the Ethnographic Visualization Lab as they continued work on the Krogman Growth Study. This study exams environmental changes in Philadelphia from the 1940s-1970s and how they affected human growth and development in four separate neighborhoods. My work involved using the mapping and geographic information software ArcGIS to indicate sites of environmental contamination; creating visualizations of highway, hospital and university construction and development; and finding relevant data in various archives. I gained a lot of new skills in data analysis and visualization, as well as in archival research, which will be integral to developing my senior thesis. I also plan to attend law school. By finding connections between environmental changes and litigation, my work this summer showed me how important legal studies can be in environmental activism.
