Dr. John Bailey is a British-born, US-trained volcanologist and neogeographer. He is an Assistant Professor at the University of
Alaska Fairbanks where he currently splits his time between working as a geovisualization specialist for a climate change research group and teaching for the Geography department. He developed the first US-university accredited, full semester class to teach how Google Earth, Keyhole Markup Language (KML), and related applications can be used to augment education and research. He has since organized some of the most popular sessions and workshops at American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Geological Society of America (GSA) meetings, two of the world’s largest annual gatherings of Earth Science educators and researchers.
He has also been an invited speaker at numerous conferences, universities and at Google’s Mountain View HQ. Since 2006, John has worked closely with the Google Geo and Education teams to instruct educators of all levels, in the US and round the world, in the use of Google Geo Applications. John’s goal is to promote understanding of the Earth, and the processes shaping it’s surface, through the use of innovative technologies. He loves to travel and explore new places and landscapes for himself, and to teach people how they can use Google Geo Apps to understand the planet we live on.
