I work at a US federal laboratory and participate in research using an aircraft with several imaging radiometers (research grade cameras with band pass filters and other modifications) so that we can acquire synchronized images - mostly infrared. Our main research thrust is studying wildfires.

Currently I'm in a project to upgrade our equipment, computer, and system. Since our contract engineer doesn't know C/C++ I've been teaching myself Java, HTML5, CSS3, and Dart attempting write software to provide a operator's GUI which controls the other computers and cameras on the aircraft LAN.

My title is Ecologist.
