I want to explore the broad sphere of volcanology. I have been in love & passionate about volcanoes from the time I was 6. Insanely fascinated by the sheer power that I could sense from them - even at such a young age. If I were not a designer, I would be scientist. I love exploring, gaining new knowledge, and disseminating the knowledge to further course of humanity. As well as possibly saving future generations. I am going to do this through the lenses of:
1) Mystifying Affects of Volcanoes
} Culture } Scientific (relation to Quantum Physics)
} Culture of Evacuation - How do you facilitate trust? } Scientific - How does technology help? Whats the role of oral tradition? } Forecasting - How do we show forecasting?
Seeds of ObsessionsSeeds of Obsession
Age 2 -3 Love of Exploring
Age 5-6 Fell In Love With Nature,Dinosaurs, Anthropology, Volcanoes

Problem:Not a lot of visually pleasing web presence about volcanology.
Note: This isnt a criticism of the content, rather the execution of the presentation.
Why:I feel like graphic elements such as photography are so important to the pedagogy of volcanoes
So are dynamic mappings & graphs
The type is clear, concise - yet not boring.
Preparedness:Developing a sustainable strategy forfor the Red Cross in terms preparednessfor children.
...So What Do I Like?
Inspiration - Mapping
Inspiration - Designers
These designers break out of their discipline to explore multi-com-plex issues in various ways.
Interviewing Volcanologist}Why are volcanoes important to you? }Why are they important to the world? }How would you evaluate the preparedness surrounding the volca-no(s) of your research?}What are obstacles? What do you propose? What are difficulties involved in implementing these solutions?}How can we make volcanic knowledge appealing to more people?
}Who is my target audience? General population or people in the scientific community?
} This is essentially why I love volcanoes. Thank you.
