Box 3000 National Center for Atmospheric Research (303) Boulder, CO Education Ph.D. University of Colorado at Boulder, Department of Physics, December Thesis title: Techniques for Recovering Surface Mass Variability from Satellite Measurements of Time-variable Gravity, supervised by Professor John Wahr. B.A. Cornell University, Physics, June 1996 Research/Professional Experience Associate Scientist Oct Present Post-doctoral Fellow Sep Sep 2008 Post-doctoral Research Associate Dec Aug 2006 Terrestrial Sciences Section, National Center for Atmospheric Research. Developed and calibrated wetland model in CLM. Validated high latitude winter precipitation estimates from global satellite analyses. Validated snow water equivalent from microwave satellite techniques. Developed gridded GRACE terrestrial water storage dataset for JPL Tellus website (http://grace.jpl.nasa.gov/data/gracemonthlymassgridsland/). Advanced Study Program, National Center for Atmospheric Research. Assessed Community Land Model (CLM) simulations with GRACE data. Used combination of GRACE and in situ soil moisture data to estimate regional groundwater variations in Oklahoma. Performed multi-sensor analysis of lake height variations. Developed surface water component for CLM. Computed first observational based water balance of Lake Victoria, and quantified human role in lake decline. Department of Physics, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), University of Colorado. Applied GRACE data to studies of the Earth s large-scale water balance. Established and employed a framework for using GRACE data to help assess and validate land surface and atmospheric models. Developed techniques to remove correlated errors in GRACE data, greatly increasing spatial resolution. Designed website and necessary software for a real-time GRACE data analysis program (http://geoid.colorado.edu/grace/grace.php). Performed dual validation ofgrace andin situ datausingsoil moistureand groundwater measurements in Illinois.

2 Research Assistant June Dec 2002 Publications Department of Physics, Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), University of Colorado. Investigated methods for processing satellite gravity data from the GRACE satellite mission. Developed and assessed models of atmospheric density structure for the removal of atmospheric noise from GRACE data. Developed techniques for minimizing errors in estimates of surface-mass variability from GRACE data. Swenson, S.C., and D. M. Lawrence, and H.
