  • Candidate Statement

    The SPD can play an important role in advocating for Solar and Heliospheric Physics. As a committee member, I bring a breadth of experience from space flight instrumentation to data analysis to public outreach and public policy. It can also highlight the various aspects of the community from those who work on instrumentation to students and educators as well as researchers. I see the SPD as an organization that can help scientist work by showcasing the importance of the work as well as the relevance to society. I will work with my fellow committee members to bring about programming to fulfill this role.

    Biography

    Professional Title/Position

    Senior Research Scientist

    Degrees and Education

    Montana State University, 2010

    Affiliations

    SouthWest Research Institute

    Research Areas, Topics, and Interests

  • Understanding of the solar magnetic cycle (through the betterment of solar cycle models and our long-term magnetic databases), its prediction (by enhancing the capability of models to directly assimilate solar data), and studying its connection with solar variability, space climate, and terrestrial climate change (by establishing overarching collaborations with other scientists to integrate the different aspects of the heliospheric system)
  • Use of data visualization as a tool for data mining and exploration, as well as tool for storytelling and information transfer
  • Candidate Statement

    Our community is facing a challenging times due to a combination of growth, reliance on external funding, and budgetary cuts. Because of this, it is very important to understand the make-up, needs, and resources of our community.

    An online, freely accessible “box of tools” to support community work was born 20 years ago in the form of the Community Tool Box (CTB) project: http://ctb.ku.edu/en.

    According to the CTB, community action can be subdivided in the following, cyclic, set of steps:

    1. Assess: Learning what issues matter to the community, and what resources may be available.

    2. Plan: Providing overall direction on the road that leads from where things are now to where we hope they will be.

    3. Act: Mobilizing people around the effort and implementing some sort of intervention.

    4. Evaluate: Monitor initiatives to see if they are working.

    5. Sustain: Once the work has started, keeping your efforts going.

    As an SPD committee member I would like to help us understand ourselves as an interconnected community, and take the first step in this community action model. In particular, I am interested in implementing the following modules: Assessing Community Needs and Resources: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/assessment/assessing-community-needs-and-resources Analyzing Problems and Goals: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/analyzing-problems-and-goals
