I am the Director of Engineering for the Geo for Environment team at Google, where I lead several engineering teams including Google Earth, Earth Engine, and Environmental Insights. I co-founded the Earth Engine team in 2009 to bring Google’s datacenter computing expertise to bear on global challenges in Earth data science and related fields. In addition to managing these engineering teams I also work directly on applications ranging from deforestation monitoring to public health.

Prior to joining Google I worked in the Intelligent Systems Division at the NASA Ames Research Center, where I was the lead developer of the NASA Vision Workbench, an open-source image processing library in C++, and I led the Planetary Content Team, working with partners in the private sector to make NASA’s planetary data more accessible and useful to the world.
