Congratulations to UTL researcher and MDesS '15 candidate Ana Maria Quirós for receiving GIS Prize for Excellence in Russian, East European, and Central Asian Studies, presented by the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at the Annual Conference of the Center for Geographic Analysis, Harvard University. This work was produced in the context of the UTL Spring 2014 research seminar on the "extreme territories of urbanization." Consistent with our general concern to analyze the dialectics of concentrated and extended urbanization, Ana Maria's maps depict the increasing redirection of Siberian gas pipeline infrastructures towards the East Asian urban system and the Pacific rim. Nice work, Ana Maria!
