Professional Bio

I work in the Coastal Ocean Observation Lab on both research and education projects. On the science side I am actively involved in testing new algorithms to quality control Codar HF-Radar data. I also write Matlab scripts to process real-time data and make graphical displays. On the education side I help translate” the scientific research and activities of the COOL group for use in various educational settings including Professional Development workshops (like MARE) online lessons (coolclassroom.org) and for use in informal learning centers. This “translation” involves assisting in story development designing new data visualizations and working to display COOL datasets and research in meaningful ways for a variety of audiences (including the media museum displays and K-12 curricula).
