Luz Lumb completed her MS in Environmental Science under Dr. James Gibueat, Endowed Chair for Coastal and Marine Geospatial Sciences at HRI. Her thesis project involved assessing sea level rise impacts to current and potential future habitat for the endangered whooping crane along the Texas coast. In her current position, Luz is a coastal geoscientist and program coordinator in Dr. Gibeaut’s Coastal and Marine Geospatial Lab. Her current work involves providing technical support and collaboration in several of HRI’s current projects, including the Texas General Land Office’s Texas Coastal Resiliency Master Planning effort and HRI’s sea level rise modeling efforts. Her research interests include planning and adaptation for sea level rise and climate change using GIS, modeling, and remote sensing, as well as science communication and outreach.
