This lead position within the Alert and Response Operations team of the Integrated Biosurveillance at Confidential required quick adaptation to create a range of geographic products of constantly changing health events from a hierarchy of sources that impact DoD personnel. The creation of leading - edge static and dynamic products pushed the boundary of the existing GIS standard among agencies, while aligning with the current structure and SOPs of this high pressure environment. Experience was gained in creating cartographic briefing material for senior DoD leadership and public use, while recommending improvements, purchases, and timelines to meet tasks at-hand and for the future.
Post-Graduate Research Fellow
This role required innovation to update a mass-collection of 2.5 million paper maps to the new digital, Geographic Information System (GIS) standard. My team constantly faced and overcame challenges as we implemented new systems, scripts, web mapping, and automation procedures. This required adaptation to pair new methodologies with existing structures. Because of the success of the designed methodology, senior leadership gave the project an abnormally long five-year extension.
GIS Analyst Intern
Primary data collection, processing, and quality control/assurance of urban information, including signage, flood plains, and traffic calmings. It was often necessary to devise new GIS processes to solve complex issues, including writing python scripts, using Microsoft excel functions, and using the latest in ESRI tools. All new processes were recorded and used to inform others on how to solve future issues.
Observed innovative geotechnical construction processes (soil and materials) in accordance with job site specifications. Required extensive adaptation, flexibility, attention to detail, and technical knowledge. Studied under qualified engineers.
