Graham joined the Pardee Center in 2011 as an MA Candidate in International Development before transferring to the GIS program at DU Geography department. At Pardee he co-wrote a policy brief on the potential impacts of malaria eradication on African development. Graham helped to build an IFs presence on the websites of partner organizations such as the Atlantic Council and the NIC. He also had the opportunity to work at the Institute for Security Studies in Pretoria, South Africa, where he trained staff on the IFs model, assisted in research, and helped to build a database and model for the Western Cape government.

For Graham's GIS program, he designed and built a database and model of daily flood risk in Thailand's Chao Phraya watershed and an accompanying web map visualization. Graham also interned as a web-mapping associate with the Nature Conservancy where he helped to build a web map application showing the results of a West Virginia watershed assessment. Graham recently accepted a database specialist position at the UNAIDS office in Bangkok, Thailand, where he will be working on the HIV and AIDS Data Hub for Asia-Pacific. His expertise is in database and model design, GIS analysis, and web map application production.
