KRISTOPHER WHITE, firstname.lastname@example.org
Kristopher (Ph.D. 2002, University of Connecticut, USA) is an economic geographer and Associate Professor at KIMEP University in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Since coming to Central Asia nearly a decade ago, initial curiosity has been transformed into a research focus investigating human geography and human-environment interrelationships across the region. Most recently, the Aral Sea, Aral Sea crisis, regional economies of the Aral Sea basin, and regional nature-society linkages have formed the foundation for research activities. Diverse physical and cultural landscapes spanning Central Asia have nourished interwoven passions of travel, exploration, observation, and image making.
