About Kyle Sorlie-Titlow
Hola! I'm Kyle, and I am a brand new master's student here in SGD, moving to Tucson from Virginia back in August. I am originally from Poquoson, Virginia and completed my undergraduate degree in political science and Hispanic Studies from the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia (Go Tribe!). I have also spent some time studying and travelling in Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, and Ecuador.
When I'm not spending endless hours annoying fellow students at my desk on the 5th floor, I enjoy running, swimming, biking, travelling, reading, hiking, playing soccer, doing art, watching the San Diego Chargers/Philadelphia Phillies/William & Mary Tribe lose, wasting time on Wikipedia, and exploring Tucson's magnificent public transportation system.
Areas of Study
I plan to focus my work on Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and North America, but I am also interested in exploring global transportation patterns and trends.
My research interests are primarily in transportation-economic geography, including networks (e.g. airlines, railroads, buses, highways, streetcars, subways), airports, public transit, transport history, transit-oriented development, multi-modal transportation, comparative transportation policy, transport-related development, and human-transport interactions, political geography (e.g. elections), and sports geography (e.g. stadium-related planning, Olympic and World Cup geographies, sporting politics).
Nonetheless, I'd also love to explore more related to human-climate change relations, science and weather communication, GIS, participatory mapping, subversive geographies, Latin American studies, African studies, comparative politics, and American political geographies.
