I am the author of NetCDF-4, a freely available software library for scientific data, used by NASA, NOAA, the ESA, and climate and meteorology scientists around the world.

I am currently working on improving parallel IO performance for the scientific modeling community with the Parallel IO library, a C/Fortran library that runs on supercomputers, as part of weather and climate models.

I have also supervised several excellent software engineering teams, including the Production Software Team as part of Ground Data Systems for several NASA missions, including Messenger, Cassini, MAVEN, MMS, SORCE, AIM, and TSIS.
