Gorsevski to bring geological expertise to Macedonia as Fulbright Scholar

Dr. Peter Gorsevski, geology, will travel to Macedonia this month as a Fulbright Scholar.

Bordered by Greece and Bulgaria, Macedonia isn’t foreign to Gorsevski. He is a native of the country and in 1992 received his bachelor’s degree in forestry at Ss. Cyril and Methodius University there. He received his master’s degree in forest engineering from Oregon State University in 1996 and his doctorate from the University of Idaho in 2002.

A specialist in geospatial sciences, Gorsevski uses satellite technology and other data to interpret natural processes. The information can help humans “hopefully interact and manage things like forests, water resources and other natural resources in both an economically and environmentally sustainable way,” he said.

He said he wanted to return to Macedonia because he knows the language and has “expertise in precisely the data and land-management strategies that a developing nation like Macedonia can really benefit from.

“I like to work on research that will help Macedonia adapt to its transition toward a market economy, with all the related challenges that brings for Macedonia’s rich natural environment.”
