JEFFREY ROSS | 3-D Modeler, GIS Analyst

Jeffrey is an aspiring landscape designer dedicated to building healthy environments and accessible communities. He creates descriptive 3-D renderings with Google Sketchup, as well as detailed GIS maps for watershed health, food environments and other urban resources. Jeffrey emphasizes in personalized community-specific design with data-driven results.

 

Currently Jeffrey is working with UCLA epidemiologist Dr. Nicole M. Gatto on a study, through the Little Green Fingers Children Garden's Collaborative, to identify how community gardens, nutrition education and other factors in the urban environment (proximity to parks, neighborhood safety, food deserts, etc.) impact obesity. Their experiment uses health indicators and GIS mapping techniques to illustrate the health impacts of 8 new community Gardens in LA. With this experiment they hope to build a more thorough understanding of the benefits of community gardening in cities.

 

During his time at Occidental College he started a course through the Urban and Environmental Policy Institute,  "Sustainable Food Practices," in order to educate students on some of the most vital issues surrounding food today. This course was designed as a way to teach students how to grow and prepare fresh food in an urban environment while also engaging students in community organizations throughout Los Angeles such as South Central Farmers, L.A. Sprouts, and Food Forward. Jeffrey is a continuous guest lecturer for the Urban and Environmental Policy department at Occidental College.
