From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

Back to Nomination_Committee/2019_Nominations_and_Ballot

I have enjoyed a long history with ESIP, starting at a representative to ESIP for the Earth Data Analysis Center in 2001, and through time chairing the IT&I Committee, serving as the Type III representative, Vice President, and President. I also served on the Foundation for Earth Science Board of Directors from 2010 to 2017 and served as President/Chair of the Board from 2012-2017. ESIP has a continuously supported and expanded the increased impact and use of Earth science data, and I have enjoyed and look forward to again leading ESIP in continuing this long tradition of effort.
