Over twenty years of technical experience in oceanic and atmospheric model and data product development and validation, and over five years in scientific data management and stewardship.
• Expert knowledge of full life cycle of numerical modeling and data evaluation.
• Extensive experience in applying general circulation models to atmospheric and oceanic systems or using observations to examine their seasonal, inter-annual, and decadal variability.
• Strong background and extensive experience in data assimilation and statistical analysis with both observational data products and model output.
• Extensive experience in evaluating data product quality and stewardship maturity.
• Expert knowledge of national and international metadata standards, NOAA scientific data appraisal and archive procedures, NOAA research-to-operation and archival processes for climate data records, life cycle and best practices of archiving and stewarding scientific data.
