I joined IRIS in April 2014 as software developer for the Web Services and the Products groups. I’m enjoying every minute of my role here as there seems to be a new challenge and project around every corner! I bring to the organization about 15 years industry engineering experience on top of a hefty graduate and post-doctoral career in geophysics. In that previous career I had opportunities to travel to far flung places for field work and and I co-authored some 15 publications in JGR, GRL, and Nature.
Thus it’s great to be back in a science/engineering environment like IRIS where the conversations at the water cooler are truly stimulating. I’ve already made great friends here and along with them I want to continue helping our clients get the most out of IRIS web services and products.
