Chris Carter

Geospatial Support and Engagement Specialist



I’m involved in assisting polar researchers from other institutions in obtaining geospatial data, creating custom map products, managing long-term projects, interacting with research computing resources, and more! I also work with our engagement team to communicate PGC’s work and values to the polar communities.

I’m making my way around the Twin Cities one brewery at a time! I’m an avid trivia-goer and am always going down Wikipedia “rabbit holes” learning about random topics. I love visiting Minnesota’s many lakes and downhill skiing in the winter. I follow US and UK politics and I’m always interested to learn about new developments in environmental policy. I also have a cat, Greta, who just turned 1!
