I have accepted a Landsat Science Team Scientist position at 

the U.S. Geological Survey Earth Resources and Observation Science (EROS) Center with ASRC Federal InuTeq in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.


I will be leaving my current Postdoctoral Research Associate appointment with the University of Maryland Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) and the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory at NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) this March 2017. Prior to my current appointment, I was a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow in the Cryospheric Sciences Laboratory at GSFC, and a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow in the Department of Geography at the University of Minnesota.

I am an Earth System scientist, and my research focuses on topics related to remote sensing of snow and ice, climate variability and change, hydrology and water resources, and paleoclimatology. My expertise includes Earth remote sensing, field/airborne spectroscopy, GIS/spatial analysis, dendrochronology, and low-frequency climate variability.
