My interests lie at the intersection of biogeochemistry and (geo)informatics, with a bent for open, collaborative approaches and tools heavily inspired by the open-source software community. I'm currently a researcher at the Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, in Seattle. I am focusing on data management and interoperability with the Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS), the US Pacific Northwest Regional Coastal Ocean Observing System for the US NOAA Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).
Previously, I worked on global exports of nutrient from rivers (Global NEWS), as a post-doc at the Institute of Marine and Coastal Sciences, Rutgers University, New Jersey. Before that, I was a lead GIS Analyst at a County surface water agency in Washington state, focusing on GIS, remote sensing, and more generally, environmental informatics. I received a Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Washington (Seattle), where I researched carbon cycling in rivers throughout the Amazon basin using a combination of carbon isotopes, data synthesis, and modeling.
