Products and Data Manager


What I Do

I manage and process satellite imagery to create data products for PGC users. In my role I develop and maintain workflows for efficiently handling large data sets in High Performance Computing environments.

  • M.A. Geography, University of Minnesota, 2020
  • B.A. Urban Studies and Sustainable Development, Columbia University, 2013

I enjoy getting outdoors to hike, canoe, camp, and birdwatch. I like to play and watch basketball (go Bulls) and experiment with making new ice cream flavors for friends and family. Otherwise, you can find me hanging out with my dog, Frankie.
