Jay L Newberry past research has dealt refugee secondary migrations as He can easily bring this into the coursework on the sustainability of the receiving urban settlements. This occupies a prominent part in the book I am currently completing. He rely heavily on quantitative methods in his research (my next monograph, for example, will use linear programming procedures to examine precinct efficiency in New York City), and while the book’s primary focus is on mass migration into ill-prepared cities, the overall goal is to tie these Actions to unsustainable practices that lead to accelerated resource depletion. This is why He admire the goal of your publication because, as you stated, it aims to create public awareness about issues related to protection and sustainability of environment and natural resources. Why is that necessary? Because the majority of Americans-despite suffering through the deadly heat dome that just covered the vast majority of the U.S-still dismiss the changes our planet is experiencing as a result of human actions.
Jay L. Newberry is an Assistant Professor at Binghamton University’s Department of Geography where he has been a faculty member since 2011. He completed his undergraduate studies at West Virginia University, his Masters at Marshall University, and his Ph.D. at Michigan State University. His geographic research interests are quantitative in approach and varied in subject centering around social urbanism, urban inequalities, migration, and community sustainability. His class load includes courses such as Transportation Geography & Planning, Urban Planning Analysis I & II, and Planning for Urban Sustainability as well as Urban Geography - Race and Place and Ethnic Geography. He sits on the Board of Directors for both the Applied Geography Conference and the Race, Ethnicity, and Place Conference. He is also active in the American Association of Geographers serving various positions within the Ethnic Geography Specialty Group.
