What led you to Earth and Space science?

Since middle school, I was in all the science fairs I could get into.


How long have you been a member of AGU and why did you join?

Just a week and I joined because I’m presenting a poster on AGU’s fall meeting in SF.


What are you working on now?

I’m working on big data processing with Hadoop and web scale service and data discovery. I’m focused on algorithmic design for efficient web crawling and the use of cloud-based technologies. The project I’m participating now(BCube) won a grant from Amazon’s AWS academic program and is funded by NSF as part of the EarthCube program.
