Jessica Miller is a doctoral student in the Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) department at the CUNY Graduate Center. Her specialization is Geography with research interests in industrial waterfront redevelopment, urban political ecology, residential displacement and gentrification. She grew up in the polluted Mid-Ohio Valley, which fostered her interests in environmental inequalities and economic disparity. She has taught courses at Hunter College and has conducted research with several professors within the EES department. She has a master’s in Geography from San Francisco State University and has worked in several rhelms of environmental planning and resource management.

Before her academically focused life, she worked in communication and helped create several films and film festivals. As a current Program Social Media Fellow, she is working towards integrating information from many sources into a usable and focused series of social media pages. Her interests in social media stem from her interest in integrating visual media into the classroom and her background in film, communication and other visual media.
