She has been mapping Russia and working with GIS over the past three years of college quite a bit, and most recently has applied her Russian, mapmaking, and archival research skills to a thesis project on Urban Planning and the Trans-Siberian Railway.
Fun fact: she solo traversed the horizontal extent of Russia, from Vladivostok to Saint Petersburg, by train before she turned 21… and with only what she could fit in a backpack!
After graduating, she hopes to enter graduate school and continue to explore some of the methodologies that inspire her current historical work.
Outside of the university, Sierra teaches equipment-based group fitness classes in Boston and is an avid cycling and public transit enthusiast.
