Congratulations to Mr. Alex Shaffer, one of my undergraduate research assistants, who is working buidling text analysis of weather and climate issues into several classes. ┬áHis preliminary work on a 3,000+ article corpus of newspaper coverage of drought in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas landed him first place in the SWAAG 2016 Undergraduate Poster Competition. An earlier blog entry on his work can be found here. Alex graduates from the University of Oklahoma’s Department of Geography and Environmental Sustainability this December.
