  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Wei is the lead scientist at the Goddard Earth Science (GES) Data and Information Services Center (DISC), who guides the science support staff (1) to promote DISC data and services awareness to the science teams and user community, (2) to advocate the user needs from research and application communities, and (3) to broaden user community by participating science team meetings, user/application workshops, conferences, and forums. Having led multi-sensors aerosol-related projects, and involved with designing, developing and evaluating the GES DISC various data and visualization tools (such as Giovanni, Data Quality Visualization (DQViz), Subsetter and Colocation) for different user communities, she has been extended her expertise in the data science, which is critical to improve earth science data discoverability, accessibility, and usability to the holdings.
