Lusha graduated in March 2013 with a degree in geography modified with computer science. After graduation, she worked on Geographic Information Science and Remote Sensing research projects to investigate respectively whether gentrification altered the health geography of New York City, and how irrigation affects the ability of farmers to persist over time in New Mexico. In July, she participated in a Agro-geoinformatics summer school generously funded and run by George Mason University in Beijing. She is interested in using spatial data and tools to solve urban and environmental planning problems, in order to build sustainable and vibrant communities.
