Graduate Spotlight

I went to Trinity College East before attending the UWI and graduated in 2017 majoring in Geography and minoring in Environment and Natural Resource Management and Communication studies. 

I am now pursuing a Graduate Diploma in Journalism at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.  As a Geographer, with a passion for the environment and communications, I intend to pursue environmental journalism and photography as a career.


In her cross-disciplinary research, Melissa Atwell focuses on climate change, environmental management, agriculture, structural engineering and both human and urban geography. She aims to help develop methods for soil ecosystem valuation and prediction based on current land use trends.
