This is a bit about me...

Personal.

I am Jennifer (Jenny) Smith Mason, a PhD ABD candidate in the GeoVISTA Center and ChoroPhronesis research unit (formerly Human Factors Lab) in the geography department at Pennsylvania State University. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California by my parents James and Marilyn Smith with my older brother Sean. I currently reside in Los Angeles while finishing my dissertation. I love to ski, snowboard, play soccer, and do most outdoor activities.

School.

I graduated from Culver City High School in 2003. I attended Long Beach City College in the fall of 2003 and won a national championship playing soccer. Following my coach to Long Beach State University, I played another year of college soccer. Next, I pursued my academic interests at UCLA and received a bachelors in Geography (focus in biogeography) and a minor in Geospatial Information Technologies in 2009. After finding a passion in Cartography and GIScience, I attended San Diego State University and received my master's degree in GIScience in 2011. I am now a PhD student in the geography department at Pennsylavia State University under my advisor, Dr. Alexander Klippel. I recently completed a traineeship in the Big Data Social Science IGERT program and a Bunton-Waller Fellowship for diversity.
