Summer 2023 Unidata Interns Wrap Up Their Projects

The Unidata Program Center's three summer student interns — Jhamieka Greenwood from Florida State University, Erin Rhoades from Metropolitan State University of Denver, and Jessica Souza from Texas Tech University — have come to the end of their summer appointments. After a summer of dedicated work they presented the results of their projects to the UPC staff on July 27, 2023. You can find videos of their presentations to the UPC staff on the Unidata Seminar Series page.

Jhamieka Greenwood came to Unidata hoping to expand her knowledge of graphic visualization of atmospheric data to augment her research at Florida State University into atmosphere-fire interactions. She focused on developing skill with two Python tools: PyVista for visualization and RAPIDS for artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

You can read Jhamieka's take on her summer's work in Exploring Data Visualization Technologies at Unidata over on the Unidata Developers' blog. You can also watch the video recording of her presentation to Unidata staff over on the Seminar Series page.

Erin Rhoades came to Unidata to explore her passion for coding and data visualization in the context of her undergraduate studies in meteorology. While solidifying her fundamental knowledge of Python and GitHub, she worked to develop several Cookbooks for Project Pythia and made contributions to Unidata's MetPy and Python-AWIPS packages.

Jessica Souza came to Unidata with the goal of implementing data pre-processing capabilities into Unidata's THREDDS Data Server, providing new datasets tuned for the needs of machine learning algorithms. She implemented preprocessing steps such as filtering and scaling on "raw" datasets from numerical prediction models or Earth observing satellites, creating preprocessed variables suitable for AI/ML applications "on the fly" and without duplicating data.

Stay Tuned

The Unidata Summer Internships offer undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to work with Unidata software engineers and scientists on projects drawn from a wide variety of areas in the atmospheric and computational sciences. If you're a student thinking about internships for the summer of 2024, keep Unidata in mind. Unidata's summer internships are generally advertised in late December to early January, so be sure to check back at the end of the year. For reference, you can take a look at the Internship page.

We at the Program Center certainly enjoyed having Jhamieka, Erin, and Jessica working beside us this summer, and we wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors.
