Research Experience and Interests
Ms. Sulewski joined the Geographic Information Science and Technology group in September 2012. Her current research responsibilities include energy infrastructure mapping and modeling, and criticality and vulnerability modeling of critical infrastructure.
While a student at the University of South Carolina, she worked as a GIS teaching assistant, teaching Introduction to GIS. She also worked as a GIS Analyst for the South Carolina Army National Guard. While at the University of North Carolina – Greensboro, she was part several research teams, including a research team developing a Geographic Information System for Bhutan and a research team exploring remote sensing technologies to identify land use changes, specifically vegetation changes and changes due to thermokarst activity, in the Alaskan Arctic.
Ms. Sulewski’s current research interests lie in identifying vulnerabilities and criticalities in critical infrastructure using a GIS modeling approach. Additionally, she is interested generally in GIS and Remote Sensing modeling, hazards and disasters (natural, technological, and willful), and climate change.
