Kevin is a technology and science enthusiast who is a DevOps Engineer for the Space Science and Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. He joined SSEC in 2015 at the beginning of the NASA Atmosphere SIPS contract. Working with a small team of developers he has helped design and build a high throughput computing system for satellite data with Ceph as a core component. This system specializes in the rapid reliable processing and storing petabytes of data for multiple satellites and sensors. The Atmosphere SIPS works closely with NASA funded science teams to aide in the development of algorithms that focus on cloud and aerosol properties. Kevin is also part of the data processing team for MIT Lincoln Laboratory's NASA funded TROPICS project which will consist of 6 cubesats. These projects have given Kevin the opportunity to play a small role in supporting the advancement of science and understanding of the world.
