What I Do

I primarily process and package satellite imagery of the Arctic and Antarctic for delivery. Additionally, I write code to assist in image processing and geospatial analysis.

My main academic interests lie in astronomy, computer science, and geographic information science (GIS). Eventually, I plan to use the skills that I'm developing in the classroom and at the PGC to solve problems in the growing field of Planetary GIS.

I enjoy making music (both with my voice and with other instruments), hiking, biking, binge reading books / watching shows, and crossing paths with centipedes as infrequently as possible.
