  • Brief Bio

     I have over 10 years of scientific programming, data management, visualization, and parallel processing experience working for NASA. I provided scientific programming support for modeling studies of Arctic Ocean and high latitude oceanic climate variability, coordinated help desk activities for NCCS Thunderhead dual Xeon Beowulf Cluster Machine, put a final touch to the first version of Hilbert-Huang Transform data analysis and visualization package of MATLAB routines. Currently I support the conduct and analysis of global General Circulation Model (GCM) experiments and associated software development for the Global Assimilation Office (GMAO) Project.
