Keep up with with my latest activities! I use this as a place to archive articles, features, awards, and more.
My hobby project, localtileserver, was featured in Radiant Earth Foundation’s ML4EO Market News.
I instructed a workshop introducing PyVista as a visualization toolkit for geoscientists.
I received the Mendenhall Prize for outstanding MSc Student in Geophysics (May 2020).
I recently sat down with Seequent to discuss the future of geovisualization and how I became involved in the 3D visualization and open-source software space.
Here I appear in an informative video about the new Subsurface Frontiers Project.
I joined Matt and Gram on Undersampled Radio to talk about my work building next generation geoscience visualization technology. Tune in to the episode to hear us discuss viz, and more specifically geoviz.
The Global Mining Guidelines Group recently interviewed me about efforts around the Open Mining Format. It’s a neat article highlighting my work and the importance of open-source software in the geosciences!
I lead a team that placed 2nd in the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2019 Geothermal Student Competition.
I briefly share some of my work bringing geophysical data into Virtual Reality for communication of findings.
I share my work on PVGeo, an open-source platform for visualizing geoscientific information and demo how this software is interoperable with the SimPEG projects.
