g Gloria Jimenez



I'm a climate scientist interested in finding innovative ways to solve environmental problems and leveraging my research and analytical skills to help people respond to the effects of climate change. I specialize in scientific programming for statistical and spatiotemporal data analysis, managing large datasets, and data visualization. I'm excited about communicating high-level science to general audiences and have over 800 hours of professional technical editing experience. I'm also excited about the El Niño- Southern Oscillation. When I take off my scientist hat, I enjoy collecting athletic hobbies and recipes.
