Biography:John Cartwright is a Research Associate at the GeoResources Institute (GRI) and the Northern Gulf Institute (NGI) at the High Performance Computing Collaboratory (HPC2) of Mississippi State University. Mr. Cartwright received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Department of Geosciences at Mississippi State University and is currently working on a Ph.D. in Earth and Atmospheric Science. His doctoral research is focusing on landscape interactions as they relate to surficial erosion and suspended sediment in coastal watersheds. His B.S. was concentrated in professional geology and his M.S. focused on the use of geospatial technologies for watershed management (as a NOAA Graduate Research Fellow at the Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve). After completion of his degrees he has served as both a geospatial application specialist and instructor at Mississippi State University. Johnís research has centered itself along the Northern Gulf of Mexico (primarily the Mississippi and Alabama coastal areas) with research projects ranging from land-use/land-cover mapping to transportation corridor studies. His current interests are in anthropogenic activities impacts to coastal watersheds and geospatial applications for water resources and environmental management.


Research Interest: Geospatial applications for water resources and watershed management.
Influence of anthropogenic alterations to natural environments and associated resources.
Landscape characteristics and metrics as predictors of environmental conditions.
Web-Based Geographic Information Systems and Decision Support System development.
