Professional Profile

Jennifer Mahoney, Director of NOAA's Global Research Laboratory
Jennifer Mahoney is the Director of the NOAA’s Global Research Laboratory (GSL). She leads a staff of nearly 200 meteorologists, software engineers, and support staff dedicated to “making forecasts better.” GSL research provides the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) and the public with rapidly-updating environmental models, state-of-the-art decision support tools, innovative visualization systems, and high-performance computing technology to support commerce and a weather-ready nation. GSL’s most recognizable accomplishments include NOAA’s High-Resolution Rapid Refresh high-impact weather prediction model used in NWS operations, the Science on a Sphere®, a six-foot diameter animated globe used to display Earth science datasets seen by nearly 50 million people each year, and forecast tools used in 120 NWS offices for predicting the weather and supporting impact-based weather decisions.
