Visiting Students

A number of doctoral and post-doctoral students from universities throughout the world have visited Ohio State in recent years in order to work on their projects with the help of one or more of our faculty members.  Most stay for four to eight months, but others have stayed up to two years, depending on their funding.  GISRAM is committed to helping such students connect with the relevant people and resources, and to welcoming them into our community.  For more information, please contact Sarah Iles Johnston.
