I am currently the water level (coastal tide gauge and deep-ocean bottom pressure recorder) data manager at the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information (formerly National Geophysical Data Center), in support of the NOAA Tsunami Program. In this role, I manage the description, archive, discovery, and access to water level data and products. I am employed by the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) through a contract with NOAA. My past work has included development of code and processing scripts, including quality control tools and metadata generation processes, to work with oceanographic datasets for the US NSF Rolling Deck to Repository and Site Survey Data Bank projects. I also provided IT support for the International Ocean Discovery Program and developed software and algorithms for analyzing a spectrum of ocean sensor types, including acoustic data. I have particular expertise in developing and implementing quality assessment and quality control processes, especially for navigation data, and have a working knowledge of ISO metadata standards. I also have had the pleasure of teaching introductory physics to undergraduates for several years.
