A Fletcher PhD graduate, Patrick Meier, sent a note to some folks at the School recently about his work. Included was a link to a television commercial for a U.S. insurance company that developed as a result of his work on crisis mapping, which he started at Fletcher in January 2010, following the earthquake in Haiti. You can read more about Patrick’s work on his iRevolution blog. You’ll also want to check out his National Geographic Emerging Explorers page.
I suppose I should add that the Fletcher Admissions Blog isn’t in the business of selling insurance. But it’s certainly our business to reflect the cool stuff that our students and alumni are doing. I hope you’ll enjoy the video in that spirit.
