W O R K H I S T O R YPhysical Scientist II, 1997 - Current
For the past three years as a government contractor, I have developed methods for dealing with a vast topographic elevation data set and writing software in Perl, C, and Java that has allowed me and now anyone on the Web to have access to this data set, in a variety of different output formats. The results of my work can be seen at: www.csc.noaa.gov/crs/tcm/index.html
I develop in a standard Unix environment, writing code in GNU Emacs, and using command line tools such as RCS and make to organize and compile my code.
Graduate Research Assistant, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories 1995-1997
At Moss Landing (near Monterey, California) I wrote programs to process oceanographic and remote sensing data sets for myself and others in my laboratory. I also performed some testing of programs written by others, and did some electronics assembly for a moored oceanographic bouy.
Research Assistant, Oregon Institute of Marine Biology 1994-1995
As a research assistant, I built scientific equipment, planned for two oceanographic cruises, purchased supplies and participated in data collection activities on board a research vessel. After the data was collected, I wrote Excel macros to process much of it into a usable form. In addition, I set up and maintained a small Macintosh LocalTalk network.
Research Assistant, Palmer Station, Antarctica 1993
For two three month stints, I worked both on a research vessel and a research station in the Antarctic, taking water and net samples and processing data collected using oceanographic instruments. Some sample collection required scuba diving under the ice in the waters off the Antarctic Peninsula.
