  • Brief Bio

    Stephanie Schollaert Uz is the Applied Sciences Manager at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Her research background includes sea-going oceanography, investigating the response of ocean biology to physical forcing through the use of satellite-remote sensing data, in situ measurements, model output and statistical reconstructions using proxies. She previously coordinated communication and applied science for the Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem (PACE) Project, NASA's next generation ocean color satellite. She is also the creator of ClimateBits - short, narrated visualizations that explain essential Earth science concepts. She served at sea in the U.S. Navy as a Meteorology and Oceanography Officer, providing environmental forecasts and tactical support to decision-makers. Her Ph.D. (Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences) is from the University of Maryland, M.S. (Physical Oceanography) from the Graduate School of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island and B.S. (major: Oceanography, minor: French) from the U.S. Naval Academy.
