Marisol Maddox, our sustainability expert, is a graduate student in the International Security MA program at George Mason University. She is also a research contractor at the Woodrow Wilson Center's Polar Institute where she studies the security implications of an opening Arctic, the evolution of US strategy in the region, polar governance and geopolitics, climate change risk mitigation, and opportunities for enhanced international collaboration on shared security concerns.
Jean Michel Rolland, our film expert, is a long time musician and painter. He brings together his two passions - the sound and the image - in digital arts since 2010. Through video artworks, generative art, audiovisual performances and interactive installations, he questions the temporality, a genuine fourth dimension inherent to moving image, as well as the duality between his two favorite mediums, the sound and the visual.
