I am currently a cryospheric sciences data curator and manager at the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I have had a diverse career spanning jobs from the numerical analyst of solar irradiance measurements, software programmer to process raw satellite data, science satellite flight controller, and technical science writer. This broad career experience has provided me with proficiency in documenting, processing, and analyzing data collected via cutting edge technologies to inform scientific advancement. I have a BS in Applied Math and Numerical Analysis from CU, Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science, and an MS in Informatics from Drexel University, Philadelphia College of Computing and Informatics.
My professional goals are to update my programming and data analysis skills so that I can continue to grow at NSIDC and broaden into cryospheric data analysis roles as well as my current data curator roles. My capstone project for the Earth Data Analytics professional certificate leverages a partnership with the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS) at the University of Zurich in Switzerland to research and analyze global statistics about glaciers and glacial retreat due to climate change.
