Research Interests

My previous research was with the SMARTLabs (smartlabs.gsfc.nasa.gov) group out of NASA GSFC.  SMARTLabs supports the Earth Observing System (EOS) Mission satellites as a ground validation team in addition to piloting innovative investigations into Aerosol-Atmosphere interactions and Cloud-Aerosol interactions.  My primary responsibilities during my support of the mission where: Field Instrumentation, Data Visualization, and Public Outreach.

In addition to my scientific background, Masters in Teaching and a Washington State teaching certificate.  I intend to use my interests in education to participate in various outreach projects while at PMEL and JISAO.

Current Projects

As a research Scientist and Engineer for the eFOCI group at PMEL my responsibilities include field support during research cruises, maintenance and characterization of field equipment, data visualization for publication and quality control/analysis of existing cruise data from moorings and ctd’s.
