I have a background in geoscience with experience in GIS, data analysis, and data visualization. My career objective is to communicate information so that others can better understand the world around them. I would like to accomplish this by applying my skills in collecting, analyzing, and interpreting data while teaching others to do so effectively.
When I started my PhD, I dove into the world of data analysis and data visualization. I learned to use many new tools (including Tableau, python, SQL, and many others). When I combined these new skills with my existing background, a whole new world of data analysis opened up for me. Analyzing and visualizing scientific data brought new insights to my work, but I felt limited by the scope of my research, because it did not solve any tangible, real-world problems. Thus, I decided to refocus my efforts on a career in data analysis and visualization so I can use my analytical skills to solve real-world problems with data.
My areas of interest are:
