Taylor Shelton

Taylor Shelton is currently a visiting scholar in the Department of Geography and New Mappings Collaboratory at the University of Kentucky. Prior to returning to UK, where he earned B.A. and M.A. degrees in geography, Taylor worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the Center for Urban Innovation at the Georgia Institute of Technology and earned his PhD from the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University.

Taylor is a broadly-trained geographer with research interests in critical GIScience, digital and urban geographies. His work seeks to combine the creative analysis and visualization of new sources of spatial data with a critical and theoretically-informed understanding of how these new technologies and sources of data shape our understandings of the world around us.

When not making some of the maps and pithy comments that you can find here at Floatingsheep, Taylor can otherwise be found finding new ways to waste time in front of a computer screen. If for some unforeseeable reason you feel the need to contact him, Taylor can be reached via email at johntaylorshelton [at] gmail [dot] com.
