Director, Information Systems Division

I am the Director of the NCAR/CISL Information Systems Division. My focus is on the entire spectrum of geospatial data usability: ensuring that Earth observations and model outputs are open, discoverable, accessible, documented, interoperable, citable, curated for long-term preservation, and reusable not only by the original creator but by the broader scientific community, private industry, decision-makers, educators, students, and international collaborators. As data volumes have become enormous, it has become increasingly important that we leverage HPC and public Cloud to bring analysis and visualization capabilities to the data rather than merely offering download capability and subsetting services. Given the diversity of data types and the need for interdisciplinary work to address the complexity of our planet's changing physical, chemical, biological, and socio-economic conditions, it is critical that we find ways to treat geospatial information as a unified whole rather than as individual datasets each requiring customized effort to find, access, and use.
