Climate Science Background and Experience

Below is a synopsis of several different climate science projects I have worked on over the past 10 years @ the University of Idaho.  I have particular experience…

GIS Background and Experience

I have a background in geographic information systems (GIS), using ArcGIS desktop, ArcGIS server, python, R, as well as managing spatial data within several flavors of databases (SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, MongoDB). I regularly deploy GIS-based web services, manage geodatabases, and use modeling efforts to understand spatial patterns and relationships.

Additional Dissertation Analyses: Agricultural Commodity Loss Variations across the Pacific Northwest

DASHBOARDS: Agricultural Systems
