Our latest alumni profile is with Emily Toner, who received both an MS in Geography (2012) and an MA in Journalism (2013) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In her Geography master’s program, she studied World War II Japanese American internment camp gardens in Colorado under the guidance of Professor Erika Marín-Spiotta. Emily was recently awarded the prestigious Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellowship, and will use the opportunity to travel to Ireland and research the science, politics and culture of Irish peat bogs.
